Restricted Use

In this lesson, high school students look critically at the literary work "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Edgar Allan Poe and its 1961 film interpretation. They use prediction strategies to form and refine their opinions about the story line progression in each work. They read the short story, screen the film, discuss reactions to both works, and plan and write a persuasive essay analyzing the validity of the film interpretation.

Create three-digit numbers by using ones, tens, and hundreds
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Big Idea: 3-digit numbers can contain a “hundred," which is equal to 10 groups of 10.
This lesson builds on previous lessons' work with two-digit numbers. The task asks students to model the three-digit number shown in the question according to guidelines, i.e. with only hundreds and tens. This approach gives students support in building three-digit numbers; the base ten blocks give students a jumping-off point for their thinking. For instance, they can immediately think about how they could show 21 in only ones instead of tens and ones.

Creating a Composition on the Recorder
Rating

This resource is a summative assessment that can be used after a recorder unit where students learn basic note/rest values in 4/4 time, such as whole, half, and quarter notes and rests.  Students are asked to review the basics of 4/4 time, such as how many beats may fit into a measure and how many beats notes/rests may receive.  Students are asked to review all of the pitches that they've learned on the recorder so far and then fill out a chart stating how many whole, half, or quarter notes/rests may fit into a measure of 4/4 time.  Next, students will create an 8 measure recorder composition using all of the pitches they've learned on the recorder so far and whole, half, and quarter notes and rests.  Students will walk away from this assignment with a better understanding of how many whole, half, and quarter notes/rests fit into one measure of 4/4 time, using the pitches they've learned on the recorder, therefore reinforcing those concepts as well.

EasyCBM
Restricted Use

Rating

"The easyCBM system was developed by educational researchers at the University of Oregon in close collaboration with school district partners across the United States. It is designed to give teachers insight into which of their students may need additional instructional supports as well as to provide a means by which they can measure the effectiveness of their teaching. System reports provide information that supports evidence-based decision making, and the Interventions interface streamlines the process of keeping track of students' instructional program, a feature that is particularly helpful for student study team meetings and parent conferences.
The full District system includes a variety of curriculum based measures in the content areas of early literacy in both English and Spanish as well as oral reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. In addition, it offers mathematics measures with reach to both the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Focal Point Standards and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics, with built-in read-aloud and Spanish translation accommodations. The Teacher Deluxe Edition offers the same features as the District version, but is optimized for individual teacher, rather than system-wide adoption. A truncated version, the Lite Edition, is available free of charge for individual teachers."
