3 Digital Tools For Common Core Academic Vocabulary -

Shift 6 suggests an instructional change in the teaching of Academic Vocabulary. While there are many specific vocabulary standards in the K-12 Language strand, it’s helpful and important to look at Academic Vocabulary from the big picture view known as Shift 6.

Tier 1 Words acquired through every day speech, usually learned in the early grades. Tier 2 Academic words that appear across all types of text. Tier 3 Domain specific words” that are specifically tied to content. Target Instruction The Common Core suggests that it’s important to target specific instruction on Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary words to help students develop deep understanding that cannot be acquired through independent reading.

While developing my school's Technology Plan, much conversation has been centered on the Common Core State Standards and their linkage with technology.

Technology Integration within the ELA Common Core State Standards

So, I took it upon myself to go through all of the ELA Standards to find every Standard that deals with Technology. Below is a compilation of the results. Throughout the course of the next several months, I plan to provide posts that aid fellow teachers in ways in which Technology Tools can be integrated to properly meet the Common Core State Standards.

By Kellie Ady, District Instructional Technology Coordinator, Cherry Creek Schools I posted some time ago about finding accessible online text, but a recent blog post from Eye on Education (“How to Select Complex Text to Increase Rigor”) made me think about revisiting the topic.

Common Core: 5 Technology Tools To Measure Text Complexity

Some opponents assert the standards represent a flawed, untested, “one-size-fits-all” approach -- an overreach into matters best left up to local control. Lawmakers in several states have introduced bills revisiting the decision to adopt the CCSS in the first place. In 2013, the general public was mostly left out of this debate; however, more recent polls have found that public awareness of the standards has grown.

With rumors about the CCSS swirling, it can be difficult to sort out fact from fiction. The State of State Standards—and the Common Core—in 2010. Smarter Balanced Assessments. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is developing a system of valid, reliable, and fair next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts/literacy (ELA/literacy) and mathematics for grades 3-8 and 11. The system—which includes both summative assessments for accountability purposes and optional interim assessments for instructional use—will use computer adaptive testing technologies to the greatest extent possible to provide meaningful feedback and actionable data that teachers and other educators can use to help students succeed.
