College and Career Ready – Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts Instructional Support Videos
A new SEDL video series is helping to demystify the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards. More than 45 states and territories have adopted the Common Core State Standards, designed to prepare students for success in college and the workplace. State education agencies are working to implement the standards by 2015. The new video series is being developed by SEDL's Southeast Comprehensive Center in collaboration with the states in its region. The videos address the ELA CCSS that the states have identified as needing support to help their districts, schools, and teachers understand and implement them. Each video addresses the learning progression of knowledge and skills that are necessary to meet the standards across grades in order to stimulate thinking about what needs to happen in instruction in previous grades that will enable students to achieve standards for the current grade level. In addition, by addressing the learning progressions, the videos also focus on how instruction and learning in the current grade will influence what happens in the grades that follow as students encounter more complex iterations of the standards. Although not intended as guides on how to teach the standards, the videos provide specific examples and illustrations to show what instruction could like in order to address the standard. The focus is on the students and using more effective practices to provide them with multiple means of access and engagement in learning now and in the future.
