THE KEY TO ALIGNING YOUR K-5 CLASS WITH COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS:

30 Projects that integrate technology into core lesson plans

What are Common Core State Standards and why do you need this book?

Here are two articles that will help you to understand the education standards adopted by 46 states:

What is this book?

The Key to Aligning Your K-5 Class with Common Core State Standards is for classroom teachers, technology integration specialists and lab professionals, as a resource for aligning your technology program with the Common Core State Standards now implemented in forty-six states. You will find it a foundational tool for scaffolding technology into the areas of math, language, reading, writing, speaking and listening as is required in CCSS. Overall, they are authentic approaches to student-centered learning, asking the student to be a risk-taker in his/her educational goals and the teacher to act as guide. The essential questions are open-ended and conversations organic and inquiry-driven, ultimately asking students to take responsibility for the process of their own learning.

It can be used as a resource book, to provide exciting new lessons that seamlessly blend technology with lesson plans and involve students in the many new tools available to enrich their educational experiences, or a road map, plotting the vertical planning and differentiated instruction fundamental to CCSS goals.

There are thirty lessons, five per grade level. Each includes:

  • The Common Core State Standard alignment
  • The Essential Question—the Big Idea
  • An Overview
  • Objectives and Steps
  • A Sample (where appropriate)
  • Links to related websites and material (where applicable)
  • Additional grade levels suitable for the lesson

    How in the world do you find time to write all these books??? Seriously impressed.

    I love the focus on integration with standards of other subjects. The grade-specific resources have their place, but those without labs and tech teachers will need this resource.

      I am simply the lowly editor. Someone else writes. I edit to be sure it’s true to tech ed. The author is actually a team of tech teachers who work together to come up with all the books at SL.

      Fun job, isn’t it?

      One more day and we can see if we made EduBlog’s short list!

      My apologies. We just updated the website and it threw all the older links into ‘page not found’. I think I caught all of them (in this article anyway).
