Salt Lake City (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment showing an eighth grade Common Core ELA lesson for citing evidence from a science text. This video segment is available to all educators as part of “Strategy of the Week,” a weekly publication with teaching strategies to increase student success and educator effectiveness.
“The Common Core Standards are designed to help students build the skills they need to be successful in college or a career and connect what they have learned in previous years and other subjects to every class and topic,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “As part of our cause to help 100 percent of students graduate college and career ready, we have filmed master educators around the country to capture videos and lessons like this eighth grade Common Core ELA lesson to show all educators how the Common Core Standards can be implemented with fidelity across subjects to propel student learning and achievement.”
In this video, an eighth grade science teacher in Salem, Oregon, teaches her students how to analyze and cite evidence from a science text as they explore scientific principles.
