Blog: Culturally Responsive Instruction

Earlier in December, Education Week published an article about the connections between arts education and the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) written by reporter Erik Robelen. 

In this blog post written for Colorín Colorado, Rhode Island administrator and WIDA trainer Julie Motta walks through a read-aloud activity for first grade and highlights how she engaged the students with the story, brought in content-area connections, and included informal assessment to check comprehension.

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.

In the recent article titled “Educators Tout IB’s Links to Common Core,” Education Week described the intersection between the standards used in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and the Common Core.

As some teachers’ school years have already come to a close and others’ school years are quickly winding down, I thought it would be a good time to share a recap of this year’s top themes on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELLs blog.
