'Common Core in the Classroom' was created to give educators authentic classroom examples of Common Core Standards and practice.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
As part of Common Core 360, School Improvement Network’s product that helps all educators understand and apply the Common Core Standards, School Improvement Network has released six new video segments as part of the “Common Core in the Classroom” series.
“Common Core in the Classroom” was created to give educators authentic classroom examples of Common Core Standards and practice. Each segment spotlights a classroom where teachers are aligning their curriculum to Common Core Standards, and includes real-life examples of teacher and student engagement. Segments also show excerpts from teacher interviews about the success of the lesson and the impact the Common Core has had on student learning.
“The idea was to give educators real classroom examples of Common Core in practice to help them implement it in their own classroom,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network.
The six new clips feature teachers in a wide variety of grades in Kentucky, New Jersey, Delaware and Utah schools using the Common Core Standards, including an 8th grade teacher who helps her students find the central themes in a novel and a 2nd grade teacher using Common Core to teach double digit addition. Each video has an accompanying guidebook that includes the classroom lesson plan provided by the teacher featured in the video, and gives a viewer response form to help viewers reflect on the lesson and consider application in their own classrooms.
About School Improvement Network
Founded in 1991 by teachers, School Improvement Network has spent decades researching and documenting the best practices in education. From this research, School Improvement Network has developed the Teacher Effectiveness System (TES). TES outlines a step-by-step process to improve teacher practice, and arms educators with a set of powerful tools that can be used to complete each step. Research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Teacher Effectiveness System produce better teachers, and as a result experience dramatic increases in student achievement, driving up student test scores by as much as 30% in a single year. School Improvement Network works with thousands of schools and districts in every state and around the world and has visited over 3,500 classrooms to document best practices in action.
