FREE COMMON CORE STANDARDS LESSON PLANNING TOOL!

Here is a site where teachers can create common core lessons, track their results, and generate reports on student progress (what percentage of students did well as opposed to the percentage of students who didn't). 

As unbelievable as it sounds, this site supports a teacher in creating lessons based on the standards directly on the website.  Teachers select the standards they wish to base their lessons on and write those lessons.  Once done, a teacher can access them, delete them, revise them, share them, etc.  Ideally, sharing them with fellow teachers from the same discipline would be a great idea here.  Several teachers could collaboratively create lessons, try them out, and then agree on a final "copy" to archive for others to access over time.

Teachers can also track standards they need by grade level and subject with just a few clicks of the mouse.  This removes any possible frustration in trying to work with a system (common core) which might be totally new.  Here, the filtering is already done!  All teachers have to do is use the tool to guide them in creating their lessons.

Another wonderful feature of this site is that teachers can not only set goals for their lessons, but also track progress.  If the students did will, teachers can move on with confidence to a new goal.  If students just missed the mark, teachers can return to their prior lesson and adjust it to make it more effective.  They might also note problems they encountered with a weak lesson (how many students did well vs. how many did not).  No one will see their lessons unless they wish to share them.  Again, if lessons in these initial stages are done within a team, it becomes a learning experience for all.  A success here is due to a team effort:)

When did teachers ever have this much support in writing lesson plans? :)
