  2. 2. Who’s Afraid of the Common Core?
  3. 3. COMPETITIVE Streamline
  4. 4. • The Standards do not dictate curriculum. They are expectations for student growth. • Education is NOT “one size fits all.” • You know your students, community, and school. • You know your strengths and weaknesses as an educator. • Students benefit from confidence, creativity, and flexibility. • Don’t work to meet the Common Core Standards, make them work to meet YOUR standards. REMEMBER!
  5. 5. • • • • • • The toolkit includes:
  6. 6. “game-plan” your inspiration students.
  7. 7. Inspiration Materials Assess and adapt Goals/Standards Execute
  8. 8. Inspiration Stay inspired. Visit historic sites, parks and museums. Take a second look at streets, old buildings, farms, interesting architecture– you never know what stories they can tell. Walk with a curious eye, and encourage students to do the same by pointing out the unique aspects of the familiar. Figure out what sparks your interest, and what your students will respond to, the rest will fall into place.
  9. 9. Materials Collect everything. Maps, brochures, guidebooks, artifacts, photographs, etc. Have an arsenal of primary sources and visual aids to bring into the classroom. History comes to life when it is brought out of black and white text on a page and made tangible. These materials may be used in future lessons and across subjects.Encourage students to visit sites and add materials to a class collection.
  10. 10. Assess and adapt Start planning. Take a look at your materials, research the subject, and see where it fits in your curriculum. Time period? Historic Concept? Skill? Once you decide on a direction, gather more information and resources related to the specific domain.
  11. 11. Goals/Standards Fill in the gaps. Your lesson idea will most likely meet a number of Common Core Standards already. Many of the Standards are benchmarks and skills that occur naturally when conducting traditional lessons and activities. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2 Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2a Introduce a topic clearly and group related information in paragraphs and sections; include formatting (e.g., headings), illustrations, and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2b Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2c Link ideas within categories of information using words and phrases (e.g., another, for example, also, because). CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2d Use precise language and domain- specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2e Provide a concluding statement or section related to the information or explanation presented. Look through the Standards, and consider other activities, projects, and assignments that meet them. Don’t sacrifice your own classroom goals, social/behavioral goals, and individual student List every standard met.
  12. 12. Execute Do it. Bring the subject to life with confidence and excitement. Focus on student engagement, not meeting standards. Encourage site visits outside of school to further regional exploration.

  16. 16. Each group will receive a set of Common Core Standards Reading Informational Text Writing History/Social Studies Use the brainstorming template to outline a creative and unique social studies lesson based on an historic site, museum, or other place of interest. Use a site that you or members of your group have visited, or discover a new site in the map guides and booklets provided. • Choose anywhere that interests you. • Write as many details as you can about various interesting aspects of the site– landscape, architecture, residents, location, events, etc. • Make a materials wish list. What would you ideally want to have in order to teach about this site? Artifacts, documents, costumes, videos, etc. • Narrow the scope of the lesson– focus on skills and concepts that students should walk away with. How will you teach it? • Look through the standards and see which you have met.
