SPOTLIGHT ON COMMON CORE IMPLEMENTATION Capital School District: Hartley Elementary School At Hartly Elementary, we have collaboratively developed a bulletin board display representing the impact of Common Core on our classroom instruction. The display allows teachers, parents, and students to get an inside look of classroom strategies and ideas for bringing the Common Core to life. The title of our board is “Common Core Standards in Action” with a focus on Lesson Objectives/I Can Statements, Having Collaborative Conversations, Finding Text Evidence to Support students’ answers, Vocabulary, Comparing Multiple Genres, Research and Inquiry, and Narrative, Informative, and Opinion Writing. Our hope is that our board will be interactive among all stakeholders, in that we are inviting comments and feedback that will initiate changes and revisions. We feel that it will never be a finished product. It will always be a process as it relates to where we are in this Common Core journey. As our depth of knowledge on Common Core implementation expands, we look forward to using the board to represent the learning that is taking place throughout our classrooms. ~Tammy Augustus, Principal
