Can Common Core Bring Instruction Back?

Can Common Core Bring Instruction Back? | sight words | Scoop.it

In this age of accountability, assessment has become a popular buzz word. DIBELS, DRA, BLT, WPM…the alphabet soup of how we assess if students can read or not is expanding at a rapid pace. The voracious appetite of this assessment monster is seriously threatening instruction. Teachers are so worried about assessment that they don’t focus on instruction, they just assess. Assessment has edged out good old fashioned instructional practices. It is evident across all grade levels. Elementary Sight Word Instruction Let’s think about sight word instruction. Teachers are notorious for calling students over, holding up flash cards, checklist in hand, carefully holding up cards, then telling them which words they have to practice more. Teachers ask students to read the sight words from PowerPoints, school walls, long lists, and carefully mark what they should study later. IS this instruction? Sounds to me, a lot like an assessment. Is this checking for understanding? Checking for understanding should come after instruction. It should not be the instruction. What is the actual instruction? Students need to read books, have books read to them, have models of what to do when you read. They need to touch books-a lot-to get sight words. Sight word tests are an assessment of what they have learned from instruction and exposure to text, not the other way around.
