At the Core of Common Core: Fostering Academic Language in Every Lesson for Every Student (#CoreMatters)

At the Core of Common Core:  Fostering Academic Language in Every Lesson for Every Student (#CoreMatters) | Blended Learning 101 | Scoop.it
The following blog post is another in the Alliance’s “Core of the Matter” blog series."The Common Core State Standards require students to think more than ever. But to think and describe this thinking, a student needs strong language skills. This language is often called “academic language,” though its features vary widely across subject areas, texts, and classrooms. Like fish in water, most of us rarely recognize the fact that almost any cognitive act involves language. We have worked with a wide range of educators who are striving to meet the many language needs of English learners in this era of new standards. And in this work we have come across several of what we call “under-realized principles.”

This discusses how common core will strengthen people's oral speaking especially those of ESL students. Unfortunately, a lot of students do not learn enough vocabulary words as they need to, to function in society. Some never learn and some learn to late, some repeat words never truly understanding it's meaning. Common core wants to focus on the idea of emphasizing the importance of not only understanding oral language but for one to embrace the language with their own notion.

"neither struggling nor regularly achieving math students improved when using manipulatives, calculators, music, or movement strategies; these activities actually decreased student learning in some cases. Ironically, a regression analysis of the classes found teachers became more likely to use these strategies in classes with higher concentrations of students with math difficulties."

Good approach

Jaclyn McKay's curator insight, June 5, 2014 4:17 PM

This article has lots of great options and links for embedding verbal comments onto students' digital work. While I prefer more traditional commenting, I definitely want to try at least one assignment with verbal feedback next year.
