New Common Core Resource Aids Students with Special Needs
One of the best non-profits for the advancement of education technology has developed a new, free Common Core website for educators that offers customizable resources to improve teaching and learning for struggling students and those with disabilities.
The website’s--PowerUp WHAT WORKS--materials focus on four key areas, including evidence-based practices, Common Core State Standards, technology in schools and classrooms, and personalization of learning through Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and differentiated instruction.
Illustrations of the Standards for Mathematical Practice
The Educational Development Center provides illustrations of the Common Core Standards for Mathematical practice that can be used in professional development settings as well as for individual learning and reflection. Explore the following at http://mathpractices.edc.org:
1) a mathematics task and student dialogue that exemplify what student mathematical thinking aligned with the standards looks like when connected to mathematical content;
2) teacher reflection questions and a mathematical overview for teacher learning; and
3) student materials related to the dialogue for classroom use.
