Salt Lake City (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced three new video segments of real educators teaching the Common Core ELA Standards to help all educators understand and implement the Common Core Standards. The segments are part of the “Common Core in the Classroom” series in Common Core 360, a tool that walks educators through every step of Common Core implementation.
“If implemented with fidelity, the Common Core State Standards could have a significant impact on the quality of education our students receive,” said Chet D. Linton, School Improvement Network CEO and president. “These video segments of the Common Core ELA Standards show the progressive nature of the Standards, and how effective teaching aligned to these standards helps students build the skillset they need to be successful in college or a career when they graduate from high school.”
As an integral part of Common Core 360, the “Common Core in the Classroom” series was created to give educators real classroom examples and lesson plans aligned to the Common Core ELA and Math Standards. Each video highlights real educators who have aligned their curriculum to Common Core ELA and math standards.
The three new segments show the following three different Common Core ELA lessons taught in Salem-Keizer, Oregon:
- A 6th grade lesson in which students practice critical reading skills and outline summaries and main points aligned with Common Core ELA Standards RI.6.1 & 4
- An 8th grade lesson in which students in a science class analyze and cite evidence from a science text aligned with Common Core ELA Standards RST.6-8.1 & 4
- An 11th grade lesson in which students compare texts in early American literature aligned with Common Core ELA Standards W.11-12.2c, e & 5.
These segments are available to all educators in Common Core 360.
