SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new blog post featuring a third-grade Common Core writing lesson plan by an expert educator for teaching adjectives and synonyms aligned to the Common Core Standards. The Common Core writing lesson plan comes from Sharon Faulkner of Andover, Mass., and outlines how to teach to specific third-grade Common Core writing standards and ideas for student assignments and application.
“Although the Common Core Standards are relatively new to most states, effective educators have been able to adapt existing lesson plans to fit the rigorous nature of the Standards, such as this third-grade Common Core writing lesson plan,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “When effectively implemented with lesson plans like these, the Common Core Standards push students to rigorous standards of achievement that mirror other countries, helping 100 percent of students graduate ready for college or a meaningful career, and ready to compete with students from any school or system in the world.”
In this lesson plan, educators will see the specific third-grade Common Core writing standards the lesson aligns to as well as specific activities for helping students master each standard.
