How do you integrate the common core into afterschool programming?

Sep 9, 2013 5:18pm

I work in an afterschool setting and want to make my hours fun AND purposeful, are there some resources you can point me to in order to integrate common core into a fun afterschool setting? We want to bolster what students should be learning in class but in a very active, hands-on way. We serve grages k-12. Thanks!

      Hi Ashley,
      You might want to begin by reviewing the instructional shifts: These may give you some ideas for broad points of focus with your after school program. Weaving in some work with informational text with a focus on increasing students' vocabulary, would be a great start to integrating the Common Core.
