As an ELA teacher, I am always on the look out for resources to make understanding the Common Core Standards easier.
Lauren Tarshis, an editor with Scholastic Storyworks, has created a cheat sheet with 10 Things to Know About Common Core Standards for ELA. This helpful guide outlines the ways that she thinks the Standards will impact students and teachers. You might also want to check out information about the Depth of Knowledge framework for developing assessments which is mentioned in the document.
How have you made changes in your instruction that reflect these “10 Things?”
