Connecting Lessons to Common Core: Nationalistic Travel Brochures | Michael K. Milton ~ @42ThinkDeep Connecting Lessons to Common Core: Nationalistic Travel Brochures | Michael K. Milton ~ @42ThinkDeep For the past few weeks, I have been reflecting upon my past lessons and adapting them to the Common Core Standards for History/Social Studies. It has been a great exercise and has allowed me to reexamine the purpose of my activities (and made enhancements for next year). It has also led me to to find some amazing Common Core resources – like this! page curated by Darren Burris and Engaging Educators “Engage the Common Core” blog. This was one of my favorite activities to design – to demonstrate their understanding of nationalism, my students created a tri-fold travel brochure for Italy, Germany, Haiti, or Mexico (we had just discussed how these nations became free/unified).
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.) Common Core State Standard Rubric for History/Social Studies 11-12 | Michael K.

Technology Articles 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. Technology Articles

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?

Diane Ravitch's blog The corporate style reformers–the cheerleaders for charters, vouchers-and high-stakes testing–like to claim that they are leading the civil rights movement of their day. They imagine themselves locked arm-in-arm with Martin Luther King, Jr., in their efforts to end collective bargaining rights, to eliminate teacher due process rights, and to privatize public education. I am not sure if they actually believe this or if they think they can pull the wool over the eyes of the media and the public. In this fascinating interview, Josh Eidelson of Salon puts the question to Linda Darling-Hammond: Would you agree or disagree that the Vergara case–which would end teachers’ job protections–is an extension of the civll rights movement, as its proponents claim? My guess is that Linda either fell off her chair laughing, or was momentarily dumbstruck by the absurdity of the idea. She responded:
