Quick Guide to the Common Core: Key Expectations Explained - Vander Ark on Innovation How the Common Core Will Change the Way Teachers Teach and Students Learn Guest Post By Adam Berkin, vice president of product development at Curriculum Associates Since the Common Core State Standards were introduced, there has been much discussion about what they mean for educators and students and how they will impact teaching and learning. While the standards have been adopted by 45 states and 3 territories so far, there is a lot of concern, anxiety, and debate around what is best for students, potential challenges for teachers, and what implementation should and can look like. While many educators, parents, and concerned citizens have delved deep into the world of Common Core and understand the detail and complexity, most people have only a cursory understanding of the changes that are taking place, and some only know that changes are coming but don't know what they mean. The new standards are focused on two categories: English Language Arts and Mathematics. English Language Arts
Music theory and art aesthetics. Can melody be rated? I'm not exactly sure of the general consensus, but I have often heard the opinion that with music for example: "There can be no final, or definitive judgement" or that "One person's subjective opinion is just as valid as another - and that it's only a matter of personal preference". In other words, many believe that music is only good because our minds are individually (and in different ways) - 'programmed' or 'geared' (for whatever reasons) to enjoy it from their perspective. This is called the "Subjective or Relative Aesthetics View" Well, no doubt people's 'taste' is biased (to varying degrees) due to a number of reasons:- what they're 'used to' hearing, 'cultural trend', simply their quality of taste in music, or even 'nostalgia' (though obviously a tune could still be nostalgic to someone and good). For the sake of argument, I'm going to focus on music with a mini-section on what makes the best graphics/pictures near the end of this article. Maybe. Take chess. Difficult question.
Chord sequencer-backing tracks creator-auto accompaniment- chord progressions generator-backing tracks maker 100 BPM IIm7 V7 Imaj7 VIm7 Here is a simple backing track with one of the most common chord progressions.(see picture) Try using C major scale but targeting the chord tones as harmony changes. Also try using only chord notes (arpeggios) over chords. Why is this track so simple? Because if you want to progress in your skills you must practice with easy and understandable music. Play with this track for at least few weeks few times a day. Key to success in improvisation is a lot of repetitions and playing along easy and interesting jam tracks. Trying to play with real jazz tracks will only make you confused and you will not improve at all (because you'll not understand anything and you'll be lost in hard to understand music). Once you can improvise over this jam track you'll find it much easier to play along with other,more demanding tracks or real tunes.

So find out which are the ten best web sites for guitar fanatics...if you're into guitars, you must know those websites!

Grant Wiggins: Defining Assessment Grant Wiggins is a nationally recognized assessment expert who has been working in assessment reform for more than twenty-five years. He is president of the educational consulting firm Authentic Education, and with Jay McTighe, co-author of Understanding by Design, an award-winning framework for curriculum design used around the world. In this interview, Wiggins shares his thoughts on performance assessments, standardized tests, and more. Wiggins has published several articles for Edutopia.org. 1. Our line of argument is that testing is a small part of assessment. What can the test do that more complex, performance-based, project-based things can't do? For instance, in some state-based, performance-based assessment, they always had a parallel paper-and-pencil test for the individual student so that you had enough data on the individual. Back to Top 2. Authentic assessment, to me, is not meant to be the charged phrase, or jargony phrase that it has come to be for a lot of people. 3. 4.
