Claire wants to doctor endangered and vulnerable animals – especially giant pandas. Claire gets the thrill of her life when her class takes a field trip to the Randolph Reserve. Not only does she get to see the giant pandas – she and Julia and their group receive the special honor of viewing a set of panda cub twins – only weeks old. Just when she thinks the day can’t get better, Claire is asked to volunteer at the center for a month that summer. With summer only four weeks away, Claire acts fast. She loves her job; however, she soon discovers that Chenguang, the mother of the cubs, is being sent home to China. A great victory for the Randolph Reserve – as one of their pandas is going back to her natural habitat! Claire is shocked to learn that the cubs, not only are being kept from bonding with their mother, but that they will not be going home with her. Claire knows a lot about pandas and she knows that the cubs need their Chenguang for at least eighteen months! With this in mind, Claire solicits friends of all ages and starts a campaign to keep the panda family together. “The Great Panda Rescue” is one adventure after another as Claire battles for the pandas, faces a fire at the reserve and realizes that there are no easy answers when it comes to animal rescue, preservation and endangered and vulnerable wildlife.

Math Literacy and the Common Core:  Writing Your Way to Understanding  Common Core Concepts  3rd and

Math Literacy and the Common Core: Writing Your Way to Understanding Common Core Concepts 3rd and

Math Literacy and the Common Core is intended to help educators understand the link between literacy skills and learning math concepts. It addresses the misconception that math learning process is a journey resting on the shoulders of students and that it is up to students to determine whether or not math will be mastered. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. An abundance of research supports the assertion that teachers should be shouldering most of the math learning responsibility. Thus, we must recognize…it is teachers who are responsible for student learning as well as for student success in mastering the standards. This book is intended to be a roadmap for teachers to that end. It is a starting point for teachers to collaborate within their own geographic areas and determine authentic standards-based, hands-on lessons that will engage each set of students and move them toward math mastery. This collaboration, coupled with in-depth lesson study, is a key component for student learning. Teachers collaborating and disaggregating lessons are keys to unlocking the doors to student mastery. Unfortunately, not enough emphasis is usually put on these keys. If our math programs are ever to be truly world class – this has to change. The bottom line: the majority of students are not going to understand math until we, as teachers, learn to teach math differently. Let Math Literacy and the Common Core be your starting point to those ends. Intended to be a workbook.

How to Write a Novel or Novella CCSS Template

How to Write a Novel or Novella CCSS Template

This is a template for students to outline, storyboard and write their own Novella or Novel. This is a differentiated unit that is engaging and LOVED by all students. Included is a CCSS matrix for grades 4 through 12 – as it is fully adaptable. Also included is a completed template so you can walk you students through the process! 41-pages in all. This is great for whole class Common Core writing work, for early finishers or broken down into centers. This is a template-based lesson designed for students to either work through independently or be guided through, depending upon the grade level you teach and the particular levels of your students. The end product will be an outline for a novel, novella or long short story. The project can result in actual written novels or may be used as the end product. Over the years, my students have enjoyed publishing their work in real book form. This is easily done by students and is Common Core Standards based!! Students create a pdf of their work and we use the pdf to publish them. The resulting books are professional looking, there are no set up costs and students can purchase their work for only a few dollars. My students love this! I have even compiled shorter work into one document and published anthologies. If you are working with a group of students at varying levels, it is helpful to begin the lesson in guided fashion and then let students fade off to write when they are individually comfortable doing so. After the templates are completed, have student write their masterpieces!! The Elements and Before You Begin sections should be discussed/taught using active participation techniques. I find it helpful to walk through the entire template with struggling learners and create a group novel together. Another way to use the template: This is a wonderful, standards-based project for individuals, Gifted or advanced, who finish their work quickly and like to be challenged.
