Salt Lake City (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment featuring a second grade Common Core math lesson demonstrated by a master teacher in Hartford, Connecticut. The new segment and Common Core math lesson are available to all educators as part of the weekly publication, “Strategy of the Week.”
“If implemented effectively, the Common Core Math and ELA Standards help students build the skills they need in each grade to be ready for the next year, ultimately culminating in students who have mastered the 21st century skills they need to succeed in college and career when they graduate from high school,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Our expert-vetted video segments like these show the potential the Standards have to transform classroom learning and student mastery.”
In the new video segment, educators will see a second grade Common Core lesson including:
- Students learning to add 10s and 20s on an open number line
- Students working together to fluently add and subtract within 100
- Students able to count within 1000 and skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s
- Students looking for and making use of structure
- Students working in various math stations that include DreamBox, small group work with their teacher, writing in math, an application station, and a book station
The second grade Common Core math lesson aligns with Common Core Math Standards 2.NBT.A.2, 2.NBT.B.5, and MP.1 & 7.
