The fifth grade team and students from Desert View Elementary are exploring Common Core by integrating 21st Century Teaching and Learning.
Project Focus: “To create an action research plan that integrates technology-facilitated resources into standards-based/Common Core aligned curriculum.” Here’s a peek at the beginning of their rough draft proposal.
The project will include the use of various technologies to improve student learning and classroom management. One program they are integrating into their language arts is Flocabulary. Their objective is to target those Tier II (high utility words) and content-based academic vocabulary in a fun and effective way. Flocabulary provides both.
Each student is provided with a paper for their online access codes so they can continue learning outside of the school day.
