Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in resources for the Common Core Standards and educator effectiveness, today announces new video segments as part of the "Common Core in the Classroom" series within Common Core 360, School Improvement Network’s tool for helping all educators understand and apply the Common Core Standards.
"'Common Core in the Classroom' was designed to give educators real examples of Common Core in practice to help them implement the Common Core Standards in their own classrooms," said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. "Within Common Core 360’s library of resources, educators receive real examples of Common Core implementation together with the support materials and resources they need to implement the Common Core."
As part of Common Core 360, "Common Core in the Classroom" was created to give educators authentic classroom examples of Common Core Standards and practice. Each segment spotlights a classroom where teachers are aligning their curriculum to Common Core standards and includes real-life examples of teacher and student engagement. Segments also show excerpts from teacher interviews about the successes of the lesson and the impact the Common Core has had on student learning.
The new segments feature teachers using the Common Core Standards in a wide variety of grades in Georgia schools, including a 1st grade teacher who helps her students write a haiku using words that appeal to their senses and a 10th grade teacher using the Common Core to teach trigonometric ratios. Each segment has an accompanying guidebook that includes the classroom lesson plan provided by the teacher featured in the video and gives a viewer response form to help viewers reflect on the lesson and consider application in their own classrooms.
