When aligned effectively, the Common Core Standards are calculated to drive students to master the 21st century skills they need to be ready for college and career when they finish high school.
SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new Common Core-aligned ELA lesson to increase student comprehension through teaching a critical approach to a literary text. The video segment and accompanying lesson are available to all educators as part of the weekly publication “Strategy of the Week.”
“Within the Common Core Standards, video examples like this show that effective educators can plan lessons and teach in ways that individualize learning for each student to help them meet their specific needs, even in a room full of students,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “When aligned effectively, the Common Core Standards are calculated to drive students to master the 21st century skills they need to be ready for college and career when they finish high school.”
In this Common Core-aligned lesson and video segment, educators will see strategies to help address individual student needs while still fitting the entire class, such as:
- Guided reading
- Group work
- Student presentations
