Do the Common Core Standards intimidate you, or are you already knee deep in the implementation? Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how we view the Common Core, I have yet to begin the implementation in my district. This doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about them because I have been knee deep in researching them by choice. Yes, by choice, I’m that person. Crazy I know!
As you can tell by the title of my blog I’m all about cooperative learning. As research has proven students tend to learn best by teaching others, experiencing, and discussing. The cooperative learning advocate in me believes that creating opportunities for our students to work together will be a key to succeeding with the Common Core.
I have begun creating card packs for a strategy that I'm calling Fix-It. Students have to think a bit deeper by finding incorrect answers and then fixing what is wrong. You can find out more about the strategy and download the new freebie HERE.
I am happy to be a contributor to Common Core Classrooms, and hope that I can help you along with this journey in which we are all headed!
