"I used to think that “fair” means that everybody gets the same, but ... I came to understand a few years ago that “fair” actually means “getting what you need.” Mrs Saylor, over at Saylor’s Log, (http://saylorslog.blogspot.com/) uses this brilliant Band-Aid strategy (http://saylorslog.blogspot.com/2011/08/differentiation.html )to explain the concept of fairness and differentiation in her classroom of little students." click here to read this great article

What's in the Common Core, but Missing in Your Curriculum

Hear from Dr. Burns about the fundamental, and sometimes “hidden” skills students need to meet English language arts and math standards. These skills, mentioned in the Common Core, are considered by some to be more important than content knowledge, but are not always given the attention they deserve. Join us to learn how to build these skills in your students.

Keys to Increasing Comprehension in the Age of Common Core (Timothy Rasinski)

Comprehension is the goal of reading. To get there readers must master the foundational skills (Common Core), but research shows that a substantial number of poor comprehenders have not yet mastered these. In this webinar, Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share proven, effective, and engaging strategies for helping students lay a solid foundation for reading success and comprehension.

Common Core LIVEBINDERS ...
Self Study LiveBinder of the ELA Common Core...
  • This LiveBinder is directed to those interested in learning about the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards. The binder provides an overview as well as an in-depth, close reading of the standards. The range of tasks offers users an opportunity to determine their own specific needs and follow a path that is suited to their understanding and specific directions
  • Each tab contains one lesson. Within each lesson, participants may engage in activities, review informative slides, read articles, and view videos. Each lesson culminates with a checklist of skills and learning objectives to provide users with an expectation or framework of understanding.
  • The lessons and resources have been taken from the professional development opportunities that have been offered across the state. We will continue to add to the binder and keep the links updated.
  • Though this could certainly be used by individuals, we strongly encourage users to use this within a PLC (Professional Learning Community) as discussion and interaction would certainly enrich the experience.
...
Resources LiveBinder...
  • This binder provides an organized collection of resources for the ELA Common Core State Standards.
  • We hope this binder will help to inform your district's professional development or add clarity to curent initiatives. We will continue to update this binder as we learn of more resources that will assist educators in implementing these new standards.

.....Text Exemplar Documents - ELA
............What are text exemplars? Text exemplars are sample texts intended to guide educators as they thoughtfully select texts to use as vehicles for teaching the ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS). While the texts serve as models for each grade span, they should not be considered required grade level reading lists. Students must read a wide variety of texts in order to progress in their reading development. Teachers should select texts of various genres and ranges of complexity for use with their students allowing students to both read at ease and stretch to higher levels of complexity. Students must be challenged and supported with appropriate texts, and teachers should guide students through close readings of short pieces of quality text.
