Teaching the Core

 
Just when you thought you were getting a handle on the different online resources out there to support implementation of the common core standards, another new website pops up! Teachingthecore.org launched just this past week, and is reminiscent of the AchievetheCore.org website.

This resource contains a collection of classroom videos, associated lesson materials AND samples of student work geared to help K-12 educators "implement the instructional shifts required by the Common Core State Standards." As teachers peruse this resource they will find video taped lessons (the full lesson, not just a snippit), with annotations that showcase lesson elements, teacher instructional techniques and thinking to help support the Common Core Standards based classroom.  In addition to the videos and instructional resources, each video/lesson includes samples of student work for teachers to reference.

Similar to Achievethecore.org, this resource requires educators to create a free account. Once in, educators can filter through the sorting tool by grade, content and focus. This would be a great resource to bring to a PLC or to support teachers in implementing the 2011 ELA Frameworks. To browse this website, click here.
