School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced nine new video segments showing master teachers effectively teaching the Common Core State Standards for math and ELA in grades pre-K through 8. Each video segment has an accompanying guidebook with the teacher’s lesson plan and discussion prompts to help educators reflect on the lesson and how to apply successful principles in their own practice.

“The Common Core State Standards were designed to drive students towards mastery of the 21st century skills they need to succeed in college, a career and life by identifying those skills and what students need to learn in each subject and grade to build towards mastery,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “Our resources are tailored to help educators effectively implement those Standards, or any state-specific standards that drive students towards college and career readiness, by giving them everything they need from best practice teaching examples to standard-specific lesson plans.”

The new video segments give best practice examples and accompanying lesson plans for the following grades, lessons, and standards:

  •     Pre-K ELA: Using read-alouds and sorting activities to teach environmental conservation; ELA and Literacy standard SL.K.1
