    I researched and tried out this Common Core Lesson Planner App. For Florida, 4th grade, I still have a year left of NGSSS. However, it will be updated to allow me to add my own standards and I LOVE the student assessment portion! I bought the app...so my review is my own. But I really recommend it! It was sooo easy to set up and assess. I lesson plan on software called "Planboard". But...this may end up being a one stop shop. Either way..I'm using it for student assessment this year. :)

    If you're looking for a great creative writing and poetry resource, you'll love Language Is A Virus.com. All sorts of prompts and language manipulation gadgets will surely spark some creativity in your students (or yourself).

      • Mrs. Stein - Algebra Chat (or Math Chat) tonight! Everyone is welcome. It has been a while and I am so excited to hear from everyone. Please stop in and say hi from 9-10 EST.

        Topic: How to get kids to think? Nearly half of my emails tell me that the area of concern about the Common Core is how to get kids to think for themselves. Let's talk strategies!

      • Mrs. Kennedy - Is there a web site that will analyze text and give a Lexile level?

        • Jun 25, 2013
    • Ms. Lee - Lexile.com allows you to analyze up to a 1000 word text. I believe you have to create an account first.

    Anybody have any resources on rubrics to score math assessments in CCSS?
    • Mrs. Holzweiss - Could you please describe what you are looking for? Which grade level? Are these state assessments of school assessments?

    Ok Edmodo Friends. My mind is in a fog, and I have a crazy request. There is a worksheet/template that you use so students and teachers have a menu of projects to choose from for an assignment. It has a "Required" section where everyone has to do that part of the project, then there is a section where you pick like 2 of the 5 choices. Does anyone have any idea what this template might be called or even have examples they can get to me as soon as possible? Thanks!
    • Mr. Shoemaker - Mr. Sexton, I'd love to see the assignment Menu. You can send it to me by DM.

      • Mrs. Anderson - Sandy, what types of technology do the teachers have available to them: computer, iPad, iPods, etc.? I may have some ideas for you.

        • Jun 11, 2013
      • Sandy King - @Mrs. Anderson- We have one lab of computers and one of iPads. I'd love your ideas. Sorry that this post "got lost" and I didn't see your reply. Thanks!

    • Mr. Epstein - The following is an 18 minute video of our Introduction to Geospatial Technology course for high school students. This is an excellent technology tool which can be used across the curriculum as stated in common core.

    The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium has released practice versions of its online tests for Common Core State Standards in grades 3 through 8 and grade 11.

    The practice tests cover both mathematics and English language arts and were developed out of a 5,000-school pilot program involving schools in all 21 of the consortium's governing states. The pilot took place Feb. 20 through May 24 of this year.
    • Mrs. Heredia - Have you looked at the tests? I'm interested in hearing people's perspectives on them.

    Here is the workbook template that I'll be using with my students in the fall. I created this in CCSS style thinking of the PARCC training that I attended this spring and based off one of the lessons we participated in during the PD on Writing in Response to 9th Grade Texts.

    I hope that you find it useful.

    I would like to know if you use it, and how it works for you.
    • Mrs. Wilson - Each set in a unit will include three text pieces. My first unit is only text 3 pieces - Shakespeare. I will probably use one page per Act with different info texts and poems focused on the same theme.
      I plan to work through the packet with the students, so they learn how to use textual evidence and we cover several benchmarks. Eventually, they will complete the packets alone as the planning portion if their essays.
      I hope that this will help with finding proof for the answers to their multi-choice portions, too.
      This is only part of our step toward PARCC.

      • Ms. Gaul - I downloaded this when you first posted and just got to really look at it. I think I could use this easily, especially for some of the general ed students to use consistently.

      • Ms. Schiller - Hi All! I need iPad app recommendations for my future 8th grader (age 13-14) English students. My assistant superintendent sent me an email asking for apps that I would like to purchase. I only have 10 iPads for my classes, which range between 25-30 students. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

      • Mr. Guzman - my vision for aurasma in the classroom is really a step up from QR coding. if i was a math teacher i would select specific problems to work out using educreations or other video programs and use my channel for students to refer to at home. So for instance... if a student is struggling they can aurasma number 17 and up comes a video of me working out that problem as an example on how to do the lesson. In a Language Arts setting I may set up aurasma for a paragraph of a book, so if a student is having tourble understanding a portion of Romeo and Juliet they aurasma a specific more...

      • Mr. Guzman - studysync looks like an excellent option. I was planning on using subtext next year. Studysync looks better, however, subtext is free. I still need to research more on both
