Salt Lake City (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment showing a third grade ELA Common Core lesson to help students learn to cite evidence from a text and explain character actions and motivations. The video segment and Common Core lesson are available to all educators as part of “Strategy of the Week,” a weekly publication with teaching strategies and resources to help educators implement the Common Core Standards and increase student learning.
“The Common Core Standards are designed to build on each other and progressively lead students to mastery, ultimately culminating in every student graduating with the skills they need to start college or a meaningful career,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Examples like this 3rd grade ELA Common Core lesson show how the Common Core Standards build on what students have learned in previous years, push them to new levels of achievement, and lay the foundation for more advanced lessons and skills the following year.”
In this video segment, educators will see a New Orleans educator teaching a 3rd grade ELA Common Core lesson that teaches students how to cite evidence from a text to explain character actions and motivations in a story. The lesson is aligned to 3rd grade Common Core ELA standards one and three in reading literature and emphasizes helping students build reading fluency.
More Common Core ELA and math lessons are available as part of Common Core 360, a resource that walks educators through every step of Common Core implementation. Common Core 360 has standard-specific video instruction, downloadable lesson plans, crosswalking tools, a learning progressions guide, a roadmap to the standards, and more.
