Common Core State Standards (CCSS) establish clear expectations for student
learning and are the standards for a set of learning for all students in the
United States regardless of geographic location. This discussion is focused on CCSS and the role these standards
take in the school setting.
There are two parts to this discussion as explained below.
Part One: First, in one paragraph, summarize your understanding
of the foundation of the CCSS for Math and English Arts. Next, adopting
the perspective of a teacher leader, in at least two paragraphs, evaluate
how CCSS (Math and English Language Arts) can be used to influence the use
of technology-enhanced differentiated instructional strategies to support
the needs of all learners. Finally, in one paragraph, justify why it is
important to have purposeful planning of differentiated instructional
strategies to promote student learning and provide at least one specific
example to support your justification.
Part Two: Include a link to your ePortfolio (Pathbrite) in your initial
post along with a one-paragraph reflection about your experience with the
redesign for the Week One Assignment in terms of challenges you
encountered and how you overcame those challenges. Be sure to include any
difficulties you experienced in revising to meet the components of 21st
century student outcomes and 21st century support systems.
