Salt Lake City (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment featuring a real educator’s 2nd grade Common Core math lesson for solving story problems with hidden information. The video segment is available to all educators as part of the weekly publication “Strategy of the Week.”
“The Common Core State Standards were designed to help students progressively build and master the skills they would need to succeed in college or a career,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Resources like this 2nd grade Common Core math lesson show how the Standards build on one another to help students develop the 21st century skills they will need to succeed.”
In this 2nd grade Common Core Math lesson, educators will observe students:
- Using addition and subtraction within 20 to solve world problems
- Using different strategies such as “count on” to solve problems
- Moving to different stations where they solve problems with the teacher, do math journaling, or watch a math video lesson
The 2nd grade Common Core math lesson featured in the video aligns to Math Standard 1.OA.A.1 and Math Practice Standard 1.
