THE KEY TO ALIGNING YOUR K-5 CLASS WITH COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS:
30 Projects that integrate technology into core lesson plans
What is this book?
30 Technology Projects Aligned With Common Core State Standards is for classroom teachers, technology integration specialists and lab professionals, as a resource for aligning their 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
