Reflection: Standards Alignment Aarrr, Scallywag! Continue to Compare and Contrast: Pirate Week Day 4 of 5 - Section 5: Lesson Extras for Your Crew


I'm always looking for additional ways to reinforce the Common Core standards, especially those my district has identified as focus standards.  When creating activities, I try to pose questions and the format in different ways to differentiate the product.  If you notice, many of the resources I've created list the standards at the bottom of the paper.  As our district moves toward integrating more technology, I look forward to modifying these types of assignments to be similar to PARCC tasks.
