Descriptioncommon core      

How to Achieve Common Core with Techthe Language Strand is part of a five-volume series that focuses on using technology to meet Common Core standards in Language, Writing, Reading, Speaking/Listening, and Math. Consider these expectations (from Common Core, but truncated for brevity):

  • Expect students to demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding to type a minimum of one page [two by fifth grade] in a single sitting
  • Expect students to evaluate different media (e.g., print or digital …)
  • Expect students to gather relevant information from print and digital sources
  • Expect students to integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats
  • Expect students to interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., … interactive elements on Web pages)
  • Expect students to make strategic use of digital media
  • Expect students to use glossaries or dictionaries, both print and digital
  • Expect students to use information from illustrations and words in print or digital text
  • Expect students to use a variety of media in communicating ideas
  • Expect students to use technology and digital media strategically and capably
  • Expect students to use text features and search tools (e.g., key words, sidebars, hyperlinks) to locate information

…and this Common Core note:

New technologies have broadened and expanded the role that speaking and listening play in acquiring and sharing knowledge and have tightened their link to other forms of communication. Digital texts confront students with the potential for continually updated content and dynamically changing combinations of words, graphics, images, hyperlinks, and embedded video and audio.

Technology–the Standard’s go-to tool. Each volume in this series shows you what technology to use and when without taking a lot of extra time out of your crowded schedule.

This volume–Language–includes eight projects for K-8, each showing how technology makes achieving Common Core language standards intuitive, time-saving, and exciting for students with a natural love of all things digital. Lessons cover 87+ Common Core Standards in speaking/listening, language, and writing. Each lesson includes

  1. Common Core standards addressed
  2. NETS-S Standards addressed
  3. Vocabulary used
  4. Time Required
  5. Grade level recommended and suggested background
  6. Essential Question
  7. Big Idea
  8. Materials required and teacher preparation
  9. Step-by-step directions
  10. Help with tech problems
