Common Sense Common Core: Integrating Authentic, Student-Driven Research into your Curriculum

As we transition to the Common Core, it can be overwhelming to think about integrating literacy skills into all content areas. The Common Core presents teachers with an opportunity to design curriculum that challenges students with authentic research endeavors, reinforcing literacy and critical thinking skills in all disciplines while also sending the message that reading and writing is not “just in English class” anymore. Sure, this sounds great, but what does it look like? How does it happen? In this workshop we will discuss and show examples of how an interdisciplinary 7th grade team at Parker Middle School has started on the path towards this goal.  Participants will learn how to easily access and locate published material through Gale databases and save their documents and searches to a free Gale account or on Diigo, a web-based social bookmarking tool.  The databases highlighted in this session are free Massachusetts resources that will help educators develop curricula that meet Common Core standards.
