School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new blog post featuring an eighth grade Common Core math lesson to analyze and solve linear equations available to all educators on the Common Core Blog. The Common Core Blog is written by present and former educators to provide resources for implementing the Common Core math and ELA standards.
“The Common Core State Standards are designed to progressively lead students to master the 21st century skills they need to succeed in college and a career when they graduate from high school,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Through resources like Edivation and the Common Core Blog, we strive to provide all educators with the tools and resources they need to implement the Common Core with fidelity, including Common Core math and ELA lessons, real video examples of master teachers teaching to the Common Core Standards, and the Learning Progressions tool to help educators see the skills students need to master for each grade and subject.”
In this Common Core Blog post, educators will see a master teacher’s Common Core math lesson for teaching how to analyze and solve linear equations, including how to help students set up the equations, work in groups, and explain their work.
