Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in Common Core and educator effectiveness resources, is showing what real educators are saying about the impact the new Common Core Standards are having on kindergarten students.
In a newly released webinar recording, Carol Stafford, a kindergarten teacher at Altruria Elementary in Shelby County, Tennessee, reveals the secret to engaging kindergartners with the Math and English Language Arts Common Core Standards.
Stafford shows a real example of teaching to the Common Core Standards, including using a variety of activities and tasks to keep students’ attention. Stafford’s lesson about the number five aligns to Common Core Math Standards K.OA.3 and K.MD.3, and ELA Standard K.RL.10.
Stafford’s lesson and hundreds of other real classroom examples of educators teaching to the Common Core Standards are included within School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360. Common Core 360 is a library of resources that move educators from a basic understanding of the Common Core Standards to mastery-level implementation. Among other tools, Common Core 360 features an ever-growing library of nearly 300 training videos that include in-class examples of teachers using the Common Core Standards and accompanying downloadable lesson plans.
Common Core 360 is an integral part of the Educator Effectiveness System, a system that delivers a process to improve teacher practice and arms educators with a set of powerful tools to drive the process. Research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Educator Effectiveness System experience dramatic increases in student achievement and educator effectiveness.
