Think like a Detective, Produce like an Investigative Reporter: Connecting the Common Core with deeper thinking, learning and sharing.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us as we journey through a Common Core based activity drawing on critical thinking, information literacy and project development.  Explore the process changes involved in building the capacity of students to ask deeper questions, think critically about content, deconstruct information and support or challenge claims, as they respond to increasingly complex tasks.

An intentional play on the popular quote from David Coleman, a contributing author of the ELA Standards, the title of this workshop invites participants to engage with the standards using the media and mediums of todays leaners. 

Throughout this high engagement, hands-on workshop, participants will explore a process for:
- asking effective questions
- mapping a project plan
- collecting, analyzing and sifting through evidence
- identifying authentic audiences

Closing discussion and reflections will offer participants an opportunity to connect design elements of the workshop with learning experiences for their students.
