Common Core and ELLs: New Resources From Urban Schools Group

Common Core and ELLs: New Resources From Urban Schools Group | Education Topics | Scoop.it

The Council of the Great City Schools has just unveiled a new website on the Common Core State Standards that is designed specifically to help urban districts more easily communicate the changes that will be afoot both for teachers and for students under the new academic expectations.

 

To help districts explain these very complicated shifts to non-English-speaking parents, the council has produced a three-minute video in Spanish that describes the common-core standards and what parents should expect.

 

The Council's common-core website has a section on English-learners and features a video of the recent panel discussion at the College Board that focused on ELL students' rights to rigorous academic programs and content.

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | Education Topics | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information.

 

What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?

 

That’s the premise of the Right Question Institute and a new book by its co-directors Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana. The book, Make Just One Change: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions, documents a step-by-step process to help students formulate and prioritize questions about nearly everything.
