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.

    Great idea! I like the concept of asking for a $4.00 summary or a quick $2.00 summary. This will be very useful in getting students to write succinct summaries when needed and expand them when the task calls for it. I can even see this in a center. Keep the Common Core ideas coming. We need them!

    I am so thnakful to see some real ideas.
    Everytime I search it is just theory or people taking sides about why they don’t like the standards. I have some ideas for standards 1 + 2 now.
