Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 4.24.05 PMCollege & Career Readiness is defined at a new level – student performance at a level of synthesis and extended thinking. In this session for the edWeb.net Implementing the Common Core State Standards community, presenter Kevin Baird, Chairman of the Board at the nonprofit Center for College & Career Readiness, examined the four levels of Depth of Knowledge, ultimately leading to synthesis by building on skills.  Kevin looked at concrete examples of student work and grading rubrics to support educators in evaluating learning synthesis.  He recommended taking information from your own library’s database to see what students are reading and at what reading level.  View the webinar to learn how you can ensure students are becoming masters of the concepts you are teaching.
