Forty-four states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense schools have all adopted the standards. However, there is a lot of confusion about what exactly the standards are—and what they are not. In this edWeb.net webinar, Anne O’Brien, Deputy Director of Learning First Alliance, discussed what parents need to know about the standards, dispelled key myths and answered questions about issues of interest.
With the release of the “Common Core” standards, the phrase “Close Reading” became a buzz overnight. In many classrooms, the idea of “Close Reading” resulted in kids failing at tortuous lesson, and teachers drowning in pre-planning with very little student results. In this session, presenter Kevin Baird discussed highest impact strategies for implementing College & Career Ready standards by looking again at the concept of Precision and Precision Reading.
The Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Science & Engineering Practices have much in common. edWeb’s Implementing Common Core Standards in Math community’s summer three-part webinar series explores these connections and their implications for instruction, in science, in mathematics, and in integrated STEM experiences.

A coherent understanding of operations is a critical element of preparing students for success in mathematics in middle and high school. edWeb community, Implementing Common Core Standards in Math, held its final webinar of this series in May. Webinar presenter, Dr. Sara Delano Moore, Ph. D., Director of Mathematics and Science at ETA hand2mind, shared connections between the operations understanding students build in elementary school and the mathematics to be learned in middle school and secondary school.
Whether you are a veteran of re-using, re-purposing and sharing OER, a novice, or somewhere in-between, this webinar provided valuable information about finding, creating, and using robust common core aligned K-12 content. Let us help you reduce any fears and increase your understanding about using OER.
The Common Core State Standards place a special emphasis on reading informational text. Teachers often say how excited students are to learn about the world around them. Whether it’s the latest news from Mars or information about a typhoon that struck last week, kids want to know all about it. How can we harness that enthusiasm for nonfiction to help students become great readers?
The largest, most difficult, and most impactful “shift” in Common Core and other “Next Generation” learning standards is the recognition that students must be able to perform at a deeper level of cognition – literally, “depth of knowledge”.
In this month’s Common Core Standards in Math webinar on edWeb.net, presenter Sara Delano Moore talked about the developmental progression from addition to multiplication. She gave real world examples and practical application strategies to teach students of all ages.
The Core State Standards describe fifteen different types of math problems which can be solved by addition and/or subtraction, most of which are not addressed in textbooks. In this month’s CCSS in Math webinar on edWeb.net, presenter Sara Moore discussed each type of problems in detail.
