Becoming a Sight Word Ninja in the Age of Common Core | Roz Linder.com

Are you drilling your students everyday on sight words? You use the flashcards, you painted the words on the wall of your classroom, you sent home the sight words in a little baggie? The classroom television plays that sight word PowerPoint each morning? You have an incentive chart on the wall to show how many words each student knows? You have sight word parties each month, but you just are not seeing the progress that you want?

Don’t Throw out Baby Macbeth: Common Core says think bigger, better, and beyond the book | Roz Linder.com

The Common Core standards have suggested titles that they recommend based on reading levels. The only texts required actually are Shakespeare and American seminal documents. Yet article after article complain that literature is being dethroned. English classes should not be synonymous with Literature. Literature is a type of English class, just like Geography is a type of Social Studies class. English includes far more than Literature. Unfortunately in our high schools that has not been true.
