After my two days spent looking at the Practices, though, I realize that I can do a lot more in class to help kids prepare than just teach the "right" topics. So my plan is to focus that way a little more. I want to continue to look for "rich" problems, be less helpful, and encourage the kids to struggle with an idea instead of swooping in to bail them out.
I think I'm going to add a tab to the top of the blog just for the CCSS resources I find. That will help me (and whoever would like to read them) keep up to date with what I've found. (Do you ever look back through your downloads or tags and think, "I wish I would've known that I had that a week ago?" That's me.)
To get me started (and what got me thinking about doing that), I just saw this neat link on twitter. It's a list of web 2.0 tools aligned with some of the CCSS standards from Herkimer Central School District in Herkimer, NY. I just glanced through it, but it looks like something to definitely come back to! (Click on AM or PM session.)
