Education in California has been shaken to its core, despite how people are feeling about the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) many teachers feel like it is a move in the right direction, but with great costs.
While I never profess to be a Subject Matter Expert (SME), I do know how to design creating and effective content. Here is a model I use while planning lessons, curriculum, or long term projects that are used to prepare my students to face the rigors of CCSS. This model can be used during curriculum design, planning, department meetings, or with a small team. Lets face it, if we can’t work together to provide great instruction, how can we expect our students to do so?
