School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video showing how to use students’ interests to plan an effective 1st grade Common Core ELA lesson. The lesson comes from a 1st grade English teacher at Shiloh Point Elementary School in Cumming, Georgia, and demonstrates how to teach the research and persuasion standards within the first grade ELA Common Core through the objective of choosing a classroom pet.
“Starting in the early grades, mastery of the Common Core Standards will put students on a course to master the skills they need to be ready for college or a career when they finish high school,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Examples like this first grade Common Core ELA lesson illustrate how student mastery of the early Common Core Standards will prepare them to master future, related concepts, and help them effectively apply what they know inside and outside of class.”
To show how the first grade Common Core ELA lesson works in a real classroom, this video is captured in a real Georgia educator’s classroom and includes Common Core ELA Standards W.1.6-8, RI.1.5, SL.1.1, 3 and 5.
