Hi Member,
Here at Teaching Channel, we’ve been hard at work coordinating a new multimedia series called “Let’s Chat Core.” After all, isn’t that what we need? A conversation that allows us to unpack, think, question and learn?

While we try to find new resources and provide new videos all the time, we are putting a laser focus on the Common Core State Standards for the next four months. Our goal is to help continue to illuminate the Core in ways that bring you more confidence as you stride into your own classroom, pacing your implementation of the Core.

I’ll be writing blogs, recording podcasts, and creating video webinars that will give you a strong foundation in the Core. Also, I’ll be answering questions that come from you – our community depends on dialogue!

Each day in the classroom, I’m on this journey with you – learning, making mistakes, celebrating successes. My hope is that with a steady stream of resources, we will engage in more dialogue, feel supported in trying new strategies, and lean on each other as we make important shifts to the Core.

So, let’s get started!

This video kicks off our series with a View from 30,000 Feet—my goal here is to provide some good basics on reading and understanding the Core.
We recently devoted an entire hour of our TV show to the Common Core. It’s now available online and provides some great Core fundamentals.
This video is a wonderful example from our Tch Common Core library. See how Ms. Noonan effectively brings the Math Practice Standards into her classroom.
For this month's Tchers' Voice survey, we'd love to hear about your experiences with Teaching Channel videos, and about other online tools you use while teaching.

The first 50 people to complete the survey will receive a $10 DonorsChoose gift card. Click here to start the survey (it takes 10-15 minutes to complete).
Technology & Science is the focus this weekend on Teaching Channel Presents. Visit classrooms where hands-on lessons capture students' imagination. Click here to find out where you can see our Teaching Channel TV show in your area. And, we now offer all our episodes online, one week after they air. Click on an episode number and watch now!
"Thank you for sharing this lesson. I always struggle with finding creative ways to deal with science vocabulary, and this is just perfect. I plan to add it to my lessons." - Eileen Gratkins, on the video "Kick Me: Making Vocabulary Interactive."
