Selection of Authentic Texts for Common Core Instruction: Guidance and a List of Resources for Text Selection:
Libraries and librarians are also great resources.Your school librarian is likely an under-tapped resource with many library catalogs searchable by Lexile. Your librarian can lead you to a plethora of appropriate materials for learning centers, online access of articles, complexity tools and more. NYS School Library Systems Association has led a resource aggregation for many additional resources to meet the Common Core Learning Standards and curriculum modules. Please visit the following site for an example of such a site:
TED’s educational arm has launched TED-Ed Clubs, an effort to support students who conduct research, write, and present and record their own ideas in a TED talk format. The goal is to stimulate and celebrate the best ideas of students around the world. TED-Ed piloted the project with 100 schools, focusing mostly on middle and high school–aged students. Most of the pilot schools started with TED-Ed clubs held during lunch or after school, but some teachers incorporated materials into the classroom. TED-Ed offers free guiding materials for13 club meetings, taking students through the step-by-step process of creating a TEDtalk. The program suggests starting with a meeting to talk about what students are passionate about. Then each student pursues one idea over the next 13 weeks. In successive weeks, students discuss the qualities of a great idea, conduct research on their topics, identify good and bad habits in presentations, give feedback to one another and ultimately give a TED-style talk captured on video.
