Reflection: Rigor Connecting Ideas, Events, and Individuals - Section 3: Did They Get It?


As I continue to revise and reevaluate my lessons based on Common Core Standards, I continue to be surprised how the ideas keep coming!

I think that the next time I teach this particular lesson, this activity will be a prewriting activity that will be followed by a formal writing assignment.  Even as I was teaching this one, I felt like I was leaving too much on the table.  

Common Core continues to amaze me by providing opportunities for intellectual freedom and lesson creativity.  

I feel like my new teacher mantra is "Depth, Not Breadth."  Let's take them deeper and deeper into the material!
