Working with Common Core and a Document Based Question (DBQ) iBook

Working with Common Core and a Document Based Question (DBQ) iBook | Common Core Central | Scoop.it

My latest multi-touch iBook, Progress and Poverty in Industrial America, is available for your iPad - free / iTunes. It's a great resource for use in the classroom, and serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQ's. (More on publishing with iBooks Author.)

 

This 18-page document-based question guides students through the historian's process with an investigation of the essential question, "How do we evaluate the social costs and benefits of technological innovations?" To make the question relevant to students, it begins with a brief examination of the impact of 21st c technologies / global economy on progress and poverty in contemporary America.

Common Core tests signal new frontier | United Federation of Teachers

Common Core tests signal new frontier | United Federation of Teachers | Common Core Central | Scoop.it
The coming of new tests aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards signals a radical change of expectations for American students and mean a radical reset in instruction.

 

The Common Core promises powerful reforms to American education, but raising the standards will not in and of itself spur higher student achievement. Teachers will need proper support in taking their instruction to this new level. That means they need new curriculum that has so far been slow in coming, time to plan that is not available in the current school day and professional development tailored to the new standards. Without these supports, results on Common Core tests will not improve.
