APPR and Common Core

29 01 2013

Hi everyone,

I’ve updated the APPR and Common Core pages for you.

appr menu
You will find Overview and Evidence Binder pages as shown above. I added the Danielson rubric in an 8 1/2 x 11 size because I think it’s an easier read. I also updated the old headings to reflect the current APPR categories. You can download a copy from here.

Common Core
ccls menu
You will find Common Core Facts, ELA, and Math pages as shown above.
Common Core Facts Page
I added downloads recommended by NYSUT for Elementary, Secondary and Counselors. The documents were written to guide administrators and NYSUT believes them to be valuable resources to all.

I also added downloads for Evidence Guides that are on the EngageNY website. These guides can be used in your planning as they illustrate what is being looked for with regard to the Common Core in your lesson.

EngageNY has begun adding lesson modules to the site. You will find a link to that page. For those who need the 175 hours, consider working with colleagues on a collegial circle. You will find the directions on our site under Courses.

Common Core ELA Page
Ive added a lesson series from teaching channel on persuasive speech addressing Common Core Standards ELA.SL.8.3, 4 and 5.

Common Core Math Page
I’ve added links to some really great sites for worksheets (Common Core aligned – thank you to Kathy Voigt on this) and lessons on Number Sense from the Teaching Channel

Remember with so many changes, you have a great deal on your plate this year. There is no need to re-invent the wheel. There are so many resources available. I will continue to attempt to highlight the better ones for you.
