As part of the NBC Education Nation 2013 Summit, a Common Core Teacher Institute was included to demonstrate Common Core lessons for ELA/literacy and math. Viewers can watch and download a 2nd grade read-aloud lesson—When Charlie McButton Lost Power; a 5th grade close reading, on one chapter, of the non-fiction text—The Omnivore’s Dilemma; Meeting Our Monsters, a 6-12 ELA/Literacy lesson on text synthesis; and How are Mitochondria Connected to the Aging Process?: a 11th and 12th grade text-based lesson in science.
Educators can enrich their personal, grade, or site experience by registering for the Common Core Challenge on the TeacherChannel. At the site, you can build a community and watch the video through the lens of the Instructional Practice Guides, download and try the lesson out, and participate in a discussion forum to share what was successful and what was challenging.
