Blog: Teacher Preparation and Evaluation

This has been an interesting couple of weeks in terms of implementing the Common Core with ELLs – an issue that is getting some much needed attention in broader education circles.

This blog post focuses on ELL considerations that are important for schools and districts to address in planning their assessments, including accommodations on CCSS content assessments and aspects of computer-based assessment might prove to be especially challenging for ELLs.  It also recommends some resources to support ELLs’ success in computer-based testing.

Now that school districts are implementing the CCSS to various degrees, a question that is being asked more frequently is how teacher evaluation systems will be aligned to the new demands of the CCSS.

A recent article published in The Hechinger Report by Sarah Butrymowicz takes an in-depth look at how schools serving Diné (Navajo) students are responding to the Common Core State Standards, adopted by the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) for use in its schools nationwide.
