Reflection: Rigor Using New Vocabulary in a Summary: Chapter 6 - Section 2: Getting Down to Business


As we continue to implement Common Core Standards, I envision the evolution of this lesson.  I think we're all wondering what changes we'll see in the students that come to us having had years of Common Core instruction.

I think it's one of the most exciting things about the Core: seeing how students progress and the higher skills they'll have when the come to us in 7th grade.

I hope that at some point in the very near future I will be able to have all of my students create summaries using vocabulary words rather than offering a fill-in-the blank paragraph.
