Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students | SLC | Scoop.it

Video creation projects are some of my favorite things to do with students. I like video projects for a number of reasons not the least of which is that students generally enjoy them too. I like video projects because when they're organized properly students have to write, research, produce, and revise just as they would if they were writing a story or research paper. The difference is that shared finished video projects have the potential to reach many more people than a well-written essay does. Another bonus is that I can invite my administrators into my classroom to watch a few short videos and they can quickly see what my students have been doing.

Free Common Core Content from PBS Learning Media

Free Common Core Content from PBS Learning Media | SLC | Scoop.it

It’s happening. School is starting back all over the state and teachers are jumping into Common Core with both feet. As I checked Facebook this morning (is it sad that's now part of my morning routine?), I saw a comment from a teacher friend asking how to make reenacting the feast scene in Beowulf comply with CCGPS. It’s what we’re all talking and worrying about.

States Raise the Bar With Standards Implementation

States Raise the Bar With Standards Implementation | SLC | Scoop.it

This month marks the two-year anniversary of the release of the Common Core State Standards, a set of rigorous academic expectations for English/language arts and mathematics that were envisioned, developed, and now adopted by 46 states and the District of Columbia. The most telling shift in K-12 public education in recent history is that virtually every state has set new college- and career-ready standards—common-core or state-approved. The process of implementing these standards is now under way as states are working tirelessly to bring them into classrooms—developing curricula, engaging teachers, designing assessments, and revamping instructional practices.
