Librarydoor: Common Core Carpe Diem! - 32 views

  •  
    This webinar gave an overview of the reading, research, and rigor components that librarians can "assist" teachers with. If you wrap your head around these critical shifts, and you will likely become as building leaders as you model solutions for meeting the CCSS. Teachers all over are trying to figure this out and this is a piece of cake for us! Carpe Diem!
    Wrap your head around Inquiry and Student Centered research projects. (Writing standards 6-10)
    Help "repackage" research units
    Help find "rigor" - Rich Text - reading passages, correctly aligned to the CCSS Lexile bands.
    Understand what it means to "read closely" - with purpose, meaningful, directed, points of view, etc.
    Understand what a Lexile is and its role in the CCSS
    Help teachers replace lower level texts (Lexile) with alternatives correctly Lexiled, or Non-fiction Inquiry Units using your non-fiction collection!

Librarydoor: Information Trumps Technology in the Common Core - 17 views

  •  
    next time you ponder what to do with technology, consider the following essential questions:

    What information can my students communicate with technology? 
    What information can I embed into this project?  
    Can my students access information to synthesize, critically? 
    Are my students information literate as well as tech-savvy? 
    Am I asking my students to JUST find information? Or, have I asked them to do anything with that information?  Synthesize?  Create? Debate? Transform that information into a position, problem solve,  etc,?

    You'll notice the pages of this wiki (on the left hand side) are the Common Core Standards. We have attempted to align iPad apps with each standard. There will be overlap - one app may meet more than one standard. Please leave comments, suggest apps, or share your experiences in the discussion tab of the appropriate page.
