A Starter Pack for Perfect STEM Lessons TEACHER: I’m trying to design a STEM lesson. I just don’t have a clear picture of what to do. I’ve heard that statement a time or two, and I work with teachers to try to answer it. Like most challenges you face, there’s no magic formula, but I’ll share a list of tips I try to remember when I’m writing STEM lessons. Sample Items and Performance Tasks Smarter Balanced sample items illustrate the rigor and complexity of the English language arts/literacy and mathematics items and performance tasks students will encounter on the Consortium’s next-generation assessments. The sample items and performance tasks are intended to help teachers, administrators, and policymakers implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and preparing for next-generation assessments. They provide an early look into the depth of understanding of the CCSS that will be measured by the Smarter Balanced assessment system. While the items and tasks are not intended to be used as sample tests, educators can use them to begin planning the shifts in instruction that will be required to help students meet the demands of the new assessments.
Model Curricula Additions Office of Curriculum and Assessment Welcome to the teacher contribution section of the ODE model curriculum. We are happy to receive curriculum additions from teachers in the field. Once you have entered your contribution, it will be read and vetted by content experts who will make decisions about editing and posting based on the accuracy of the content, fit to the academic content standards and whether it provides a new and unique contribution that will be helpful to other teachers. Teachengineering.org Common Core & Ohio Revised Standards Templates The Allen County ESC has devised templates for educators to use to map out the English Language Arts and Mathematics Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Science and Social Studies Ohio revised Learning Standards. These templates list all of the strands, standard/content statements, topics, themes, domains, and clusters based on the 2010 CCSS and Ohio Learning Standards. Teachers have found these templates to be useful for creating pacing guides and/or curriculum maps. Maps are formatted in Excel to make it easy to manipulate columns.

Khan Academy The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents.
The Hunt Institute and CCSSO Release Common Core Implementation Video Series Common Core Implementation Video Series To further aid states as they continue to implement the Common Core State Standards (Standards), the Hunt Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers have commissioned a series of video vignettes that explain the Standards in far greater depth. Several of the key Standards writers were asked, in their own words, to talk about how the Standards were developedand the goals they set for all students.
