I have been a very busy person lately. The Common Core is on my mind much as it is on many educators. Many people have enjoyed training sessions provided by their district or from workshops. I find that these sessions result in one of two scenarios: a) I actually get this! I am superwoman! (aka...Knowledge empowered) or b) I feel like I knew less when I started out. (aka...Completely clueless). My general state of being at the time of my district's training sessions was overwhelmed from all the other stuff I needed to learn as a CF. You can imagine the scenario I ended up in......
Therefore, I have devoted quite a bit of time to reviewing the Common Core standards on my own. I wish I could say that I understand everything, but it feels very far from it at times. My main goal is just to get a grasp at how it will affect IEP goals. The only way I know how to do this is create a goal bank.
Here is a peek at what I've been up to.....................
Common Core Speaking & Listening Goal Bank
BTW, if you want a PDF of the standards for each grade there is a nice website to visit.
