New School Improvement Network Program Shows Math and English Standards Implementation in Every Grade
SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness and Common Core resources, today announces the first complete view of the Common Core Standards learning progression from kindergarten to high school graduation. Through their “Common Core in the Classroom” series, School Improvement Network has documented a single ELA and math standard continuously as it progresses through each grade. This program shows the learning progression of the Standards, and the impact they’re having on preparing students for college and career.
“It is vital that educators be able to understand and envision the progressive nature of the Common Core Standards,” said Chet Linton, School Improvement Network president and CEO. “This new program shows that progression, and how each standard builds upon itself year after year, continuing until students have developed the skillset they need to start college or a meaningful career.”
The program features 10 video segments representing both the Math and ELA Common Core Standards. Each was filmed with real teachers in their classrooms in Shelby County, Tennessee, and also features interview excerpts from the teachers that highlight lesson successes and the impact the Common Core is having on student achievement in their classroom.
This program is part of School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360, a library of resources that moves educators from a basic understanding of the Common Core Standards to mastery-level implementation. Among other tools, Common Core 360 features an ever-growing library of nearly 300 training videos, including real, in-class examples of teachers using the Common Core Standards, with accompanying downloadable lesson plans. Common Core 360 is an integral part of the Educator Effectiveness System, a system that delivers a process to improve teacher practice and arms educators with a set of powerful tools to drive the process. Research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Educator Effectiveness System experience dramatic increases in student achievement and educator effectiveness.
