Article written by Dr. Rozlyn Linder

This is the official blog of Dr. Roz Linder, an academic, K-12 Language Arts Specialist, former elementary school teacher, high school journalism teacher, and all-around rabble rouser. I am interested in how we equip students to compete in a global community that grows increasingly flatter every millisecond and the practical application of communication pedagogy and Common Core standards.Situated at the intersection of cultural, racial, social, and digital literacy, my blog is all about fostering and supporting the recognition that we don’t teach in your grandad’s America and being happy about that. Let's stop telling students what to think or believe, but prepare students to think critically and often.

    I really appreciate the kind of topics you post here. This helps make sense of the Common Core. Thanks for sharing great information that is actually helpful.

    Thank you! I am noticing that you cannot teach ANYTHING is you don’t teach this first.

    What I like about this is that it gives teachers a step by step way to introduce it the first time. Many of us are so busy trying to make sense of the standards, we are forgetting to model and just show the kids what the skill is really all about. This helps me! I will pass it along to me team tomorrow as well.

    I’ve said that least 3780302 times. I work with coaches who train teachers and I keep reiterating that citing evidence and proving arguments is the center of Common Core. Thanks for confirming what I have been saying. I will send my coaches here, too. 🙂
