About the EdSteps Skills EdSteps does not believe that these are the only five skills students should learn or even that these are the most important five. These skills are the five that the initiative will start examining, with the hope of adding additional skills over the next few years. To prepare for collecting and rating student work, EdSteps formed separate workgroups for each skill area. Each workgroup is comprised of about 10-20 people, representing state departments of education, researchers, professors from colleges and universities, and other leading advocates and educators. To learn more about the EdSteps skill areas, please contact Resources: Here are a few helpful resources: Sample Lesson Plans. The Most Useful Resources For Implementing Common Core — I Hope You’ll Contribute More (NOTE: Readers have begun to contribute some excellent ideas in the comments. I’ll get around to adding them to the body of this post but, until then, be sure to review the comments, too!) I’m obviously not a real big fan of Common Core standards, and am a bit skeptical about its practical impact on what happens in the classroom. Nevertheless, they’re here, and I thought it would be useful to readers and to me to begin to collect some practical and helpful tools. I’m starting off with a few today, and hope readers will contribute a whole lot more — for all subjects and grade levels.
