Margo Gottlieb offers tips for teachers and school leaders on how to integrate the Common Core standards and English Language Learners
In a recent survey, William Schmidt, a University Distinguished Professor of education at Michigan State University, found some good news and bad news for supporters of the Common Core State Standards. The good news was that the vast majority of teachers have read the Standards and nearly all like them. The bad news was that about 80 percent of mathematics teachers said the Standards were “pretty much the same” as their current state standards. Those teachers might want to take a closer look. While the Common Core State Standards share many features and concepts with existing standards, the new standards also represent a substantial departure from current practice in a number of respects.
Connecting Lessons to Common Core: Nationalistic Travel Brochures | Michael K. Milton ~ @42ThinkDeepFor the past few weeks, I have been reflecting upon my past lessons and adapting them to the Common Core Standards for History/Social Studies .
For the past few weeks, my colleague Todd Whitten and I have been sharing some work that we have done with the Common Core State Standards for History/Social Studies. During this process, we created rubrics based upon the 9-10th Grade Standards and the 11-12th Grade Standards. This week, we will be sharing those documents. Below is what we created based upon the Common Core State Standards for History/Social Studies for 11-12th Grades . (Todd will be launching the rubric for the 9-10th grade on his blog later this week.)
Brain research confirms what experienced teachers have always known: . Consequently, it necessarily follows that although essential curricula goals may be similar for all students, methodologies employed in a classroom must be varied to suit to the individual needs of all children: ie. learning must be differentiated to be effective. Differentiating instruction means creating multiple paths so that students of different abilities, interest or learning needs experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop and present concepts as a part of the daily learning process. It allows students to take greater responsibility and ownership for their own learning, and provides opportunities for peer teaching and cooperative learning. Differentiating is not new, the concept has been around for at least 2 decades for gifted and talented students.
Martha L. Maznevski, Assistant Professor, McIntire School of Commerce In my experience, grading class participation is one of the most difficult aspects of student evaluation.
Academia has lots and lots and lots of systems in place for assuring that credit is always given where credit is due. If you're writing a paper, there are particular ways to cite internet sources-- even tweets and Facebook posts . But what about on the internet?

Summary: APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences. This resource, revised according to the 6 th edition, second printing of the APA manual, offers examples for the general format of APA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the reference page.
Leslie Owen Wilson 2006, restrictions on usage Background: In the late 1950s into the early 1970s here in the US there were attempts to dissect and classify the varied domains of human learning - cognitive (knowing, head), affective (feeling, heart) and psychomotor (doing, hand/body). The resulting efforts yielded a series of taxonomies in each area. A taxonomy is really just a word for a form of classification.
