The Curriculum Corner 123 — Weaving the Common Core into your Daily Curriculum

A Taste of Russian The Common Core State Standards Initiative The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) Interactive Map by iMapBuilder The Common Core State Standards: Development, Adoption, and ImplementationThe Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of high quality academic expectations in English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics that define the knowledge and skills all students should master by the end of each grade level in order to be on track for success in college and career. The development of the standards was a state-led effort spearheaded by governors and school chiefs. CCSSO and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices coordinated the development process in partnership with Achieve, ACT, and the College Board. A diverse team of teachers, parents, administrators, researchers and content experts developed the CCSS to be academically rigorous, attainable for students, and practical for teachers and districts, and an expert validation committee provided an independent review of the standards.

Проектите, които ще се ангажират ОУ Readers It's my fault. I'll admit it. During my eight years in the classroom, I ruined at least two amazing literary works by assigning horrifically dull reading projects. My only hope is that those middle school students, whose enthusiasm I quashed, found another way to become passionate about literature. Peanuts raises some interesting questions about the value of reading projects. In middle school, we ask students to dissect texts and perform literary analysis. Demonstrate understanding of the plot elementsExplore the role of tone and themeIdentify significant scenes or events and their impact on the storyAnalyze a character and show an understanding of that character's motivationsExplain the relationship between the author's life and the story . . . does it have to be an essay or book report? Book Trailers In the spirit of movie trailers, book trailers allow students to create video advertisements to entice new readers. Students could use iMovie or Animoto to create and publish their videos.

Common Core Connect Italy Travel: New Year's Eve Events in Italian Cities New Year's Eve sees many festive events throughout Italy but the biggest and most popular are in these Italian cities.

Driving and parking will be difficult (or impossible) in most places so check out public transportation options ahead of time and remember that they'll be crowded, too.

Next to the church of Santa Maria del Popolo, you can still see the exhibit of traditional nativity scenes (through January 8) from 100 regions of Italy and other countries of the world. Another good place to celebrate is near the Colosseum on Via dei Fori Imperiali where there's live music usually starting around 10PM and midnight fireworks. For live music, check these Rome Music Venues. Rome Travel Guide | Where to Stay in Rome Rimini Rimini Travel Guide | Where to Stay in Rimini Naples and Capri Bologna Venice

Настучать и устаканить - Very Much Russian Podcast Hello everybody. Here is a new podcast delivering you a new portion of informal Russian language and slang. Today you will learn such words as “устаканить” и “застолбить”, as well as get to know one more meaning of the word “стучать” (to knock). Audio Player Download mp3 file (right click, save as…) Всем привет. Сегодня у нас очередная порция русской разговорной речи и сленга. Мы смогли встретиться только после того, как волнения в городе устаканились. Мне нужно устаканить несколько вещей и после этого я полностью свободна. “Устаканить” происходит от слова “стакан”. Следующим номером у нас выступает “застукать”, что означает “застать врасплох за каким-либо занятием”. Мои родители застукали, что я курю, и неделю не выпускали меня из дома. Давай быстрее, пока нас не застукали. Как можно заметить, происходит это слово от “стучать”. Одноклассники его не любили, так как были уверены, что он обо всем стучит учителям и директору. Кто-то настучал моим родителям, что мы прогуляли школу сегодня.

The phrase ‘soft skills’ is often used to describe the skills which characterise relationships with other people, or which are about how you approach life and work. Others phrases that are often used for these types of skills include: ‘people skills’, ‘interpersonal skills’, ‘social skills’ or ‘transferable skills’. ‘Hard skills’, by contrast, is a phrase usually used to describe job-specific skills.

Няма ограничения Psychologist Anders Ericsson and other researchers in the field of ‘expertise studies’ have, in recent years, introduced a plethora of new information about how people develop advanced skills that is beginning to change our view of human potential and its limits. This is an opportunity to move the public conversation beyond clichés such as innate talent, giftedness and nature versus nurture, instead moving towards a more nuanced discussion of how human skills actually develop, ultimately helping people to maximise their potential. Truly great accomplishments are inherently mysterious, awe-inspiring and even intimidating to witness. It is an assumption built right into our culture. Notably, Friedrich Nietzsche dissented along the way. To illustrate this, Nietzsche cited Beethoven’s sketchbooks, which reveal the composer’s slow, painstaking process of testing and tinkering with melody fragments. A dynamic process The adaptable brain How does deliberate practice actually improve our skills?
