Common Core & Lifelong Learning: Are We Pouring Concrete or Building Capacity?

654 views

Published on

The learning objectives within the Common Core State Standards represent a rigorous application of research, media and higher-order thinking skills, as students develop their capacity to engage in complex text and tasks that have real-world implications.

Essential to this effort are the lifelong learning skills, habits and dispositions that serve as the foundational structure for all learners. Without thoughtful and purposeful attention to these and other requisites we risk our investments of time, money and energy yielding little return – like pouring concrete without proper supports in place.

A rich discussion focused on the core tools our leaners need to build capacity and develop competencies in discovering meaning, analyzing content, comparing information, synthesizing, applying and sharing their understandings.

An Olympic marathoner training at high altitude in Colorado feels dizzy and begins hyperventilating while taking a run. Her blood pH is elevated, resulting in alkalosis. How will normal blood pH be restored?Sunday, July 29, 2012
  20. 20. AP BIOLOGY Question #2: HCO3H2O + C02 The equation above shows a reversible reaction that occurs in blood. An Olympic marathoner training at high altitude in Colorado feels dizzy and begins hyperventilating while taking a run. Her blood pH is elevated, resulting in alkalosis. How will normal blood pH be restored? Answers: 1. An increase in 02 concentration in the plasma will lead to a decrease in H+ concentration. 2. An increase in CO2 concentration in the plasma will lead to an increase in H+ concentration. 3. A decrease in sweating will lead to an increase in HCO3 concentration. 4. A decrease in respiration will lead to an increase in plasma O2 concentration.Sunday, July 29, 2012
