As the Common Core Standards begin to be taught in schools and systems in multiple states, expert educators are finding ways to combine the Standards with their local curriculum into math and ELA Common Core lesson plans tailored to drive student mastery.
Salt Lake City (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced an updated aggregation of math and ELA Common Core lesson plans on the Common Core Blog. The Common Core Blog is written by education professionals and former educators, and includes tools and resources from School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360. Through Common Core 360 and contributing effective educators, the Common Core Blog now includes dozens of math and ELA Common Core lesson plans for grades K-12, all of which have been tested or created by real educators in real classrooms.
“As the Common Core Standards begin to be taught in schools and systems in multiple states, expert educators are finding ways to combine the Standards with their local curriculum into math and ELA Common Core lesson plans tailored to drive student mastery,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “If implemented effectively, as illustrated in these and other math and ELA lesson plans, the Common Core Standards can progressively move students towards mastery of the skills they need to be prepared to start college or a meaningful career when they finish high school.”
The Common Core Blog features other Common Core resources for Common Core implementation and support, such as tools for assessments and student activities. The blog also features resources from School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360, a comprehensive tool to walk educators through every step of Common Core implementation with standard-specific video instruction, downloadable lesson plans, crosswalking tools, a learning progressions guide, and resources like math and ELA Common Core lesson plans for highly effective educators.
