New School Improvement Network video shows strategy for open-ended questions in Common Core ELA standards from real educator.

Common Core ELA Standards

If taught and implemented effectively, the Common Core ELA and math standards have the potential to make an unprecedented, positive impact on helping 100 percent of students graduate ready to start college or a meaningful career.

School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today released a new video outlining a strategy for open-ended questions aligned with the Common Core ELA Standards. The Common Core ELA strategy comes as part of "Strategy of the Week," a weekly publication with Common Core ELA and math strategies for improving Common Core implementation and student achievement.

"In the effort to implement the Common Core Standards, strategies like these show how real educators are effectively implementing the Common Core ELA and math standards in their classroom," said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. "If taught and implemented effectively, the Common Core ELA and math standards have the potential to make an unprecedented, positive impact on helping 100 percent of students graduate ready to start college or a meaningful career."

In the video segment, a 5th grade teacher from Harriet Tubman Elementary in Newark, New Jersey, teaches a lesson about reading comprehension and answering open-ended questions using textual evidence. The lesson addresses Common Core ELA standards RL.5.1, RF.5.4, SL.5.1, and SL.5.4 by having her students work in groups, using specific details from the text to draw inferences and answer questions about the main character in the text.
