Salt Lake City (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness and Common Core resources, today announced the release of a new blog post that gives real Common Core-aligned lesson plans for the English language arts standards (ELA) on teaching elementary school students to write. The lesson plan comes as part of School Improvement Network’s Common Core Blog, a resource for educators on understanding and implementing the Common Core State Standards.
“The Common Core State Standards were designed to help all students become college and career ready, and consequently create a higher standard of education for all students, regardless of which district or state they live in,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “As a company, we strive to give teachers the resources to properly implement the Common Core Standards to help spur educator effectiveness and student success.”
This lesson plan, by Maggie Tompkins of Shiloh Elementary School in Cumming, Georgia, shows how to teach Common Core English language arts standard W.K.2 in four stages, including sample questions and assignments aligned to the Common Core.
