Common Core to leave districts in control of curriculum - That is right!

The proposed Common Core is no different, it just extends that set of standards to most of the states in the country. Each district will still have local control of the curriculum that is taught, he said.

Diane Goodman's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:56 PM

This infographic is worth a close look. Its value lies in helping teachers plan and design learning outcomes, assessment tasks and learning activities that enable learners to master lower level understanding and move toward higher order thinking and critical enquiry. It maps and explains Bloom's learning levels and learning domains in a way that illustrates the hierarchy and relationships, however each learning level, within each domain, has embedded verbs that are not included here.

RUST: TEACHING POETRY, PHOTOGRAPHY AND GRAPHIC NOVELS TO MEET COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS

 

This post has a review of Rust by Royden Lepp - a graphic novel that have been rated appropriate reading for all ages - although I would say they will be enjoyed by readers Grade 4 through adult. While younger readers will easily focus on Roman and Oswald his younger brother along with their responsibilities to their farm and family, and their relationship with Jet Jones,  older readers will comprehend the larger issues of artificial intelligence, and drone warfare.

Mathematics Assessment Project: Prototype Professional Development Modules

Mathematics Assessment Project: Prototype Professional Development Modules | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"The Mathematics Assessment Project has developed the Classroom Challenges to exemplify the types of activities needed to supplement traditional classroom practice and support the Standards. The Professional Development Modules are designed to help teachers with the practical and pedagogical challenges presented by these lessons.

 

"Module 1 intoduces the model of formative assessment used in the lessons, its theroetical background and practical implemention. Modules 2 & 3 look at the two types of Classroom Challenges in detail. Modules 4 & 5 explore two crucial pedagogical features of the lessons: asking probing questions and collaborative learning.

 

"The modules are activity-based; built around a collection of example classroom activities. The aim is to engage groups of teachers in constructive discussions about their own practices and how these could change. They then plan and teach a lesson using these ideas in their own classroom, and meet again to reflect on their experiences.

 

"Each module includes a PD session guide and handouts for teachers, as well as sample classroom materials and suggested lesson plans. Also included are videos of real teachers trying these techniques with their own classes, often for the first time, and discussing the results."
