Academic Review Games The Teachers' Zone » Classroom Ideas » Academic Review Games TRASH BALLTrash Ball is a popular game in our high school. I think most of our departments use it. 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.

Paper Moon: Simulating a Total Solar Eclipse Using a Journal Article as a ProfessionalDevelopment Experience Rationale for Use This article provides mathematics teachers an opportunity to reflect on practice by exploring: How multiple representations can be used to enhance student learning and understanding of student learningHow physical, tabular, graphical, verbal, and symbolic representations can be connected in a lessonConnections across the different strands of the curriculum—algebra, geometry, and trigonometryConnections among different subject areas—mathematics, astronomy, and scienceUse of spreadsheets/technology to analyze dataAppropriate use of concrete models to explore mathematical ideasHow instruction can incorporate student interactions and feedback Suggestions for Use
Assessment Rubrics Math Standards-Based Math Rubric The Exemplars Standards-Based Math Rubric was updated in 2014 to reflect more current standards. 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.
