Common Core Resources: Teaching Channel & Education Nation
posted by: Melissa | October 16, 2013, 08:44 PM   

Interpreting the Common Core state standards can be difficult, especially when it seems like you’re getting different information from all sides.  That’s why it’s so important to make sure that the resources you’re using to help you implement and interpret the state standards are high quality. Happily, we can say that the teaching channel is a great site to turn to for help learning how to implement the core.

The Teaching Channel
is best known for its short videos featuring teachers in real classrooms demonstrating valuable teaching skills.  From the main page on the front, you can click their Common Core link and know that you’ll find videos that not only explain the type of skills the Common Core standards are looking for, but also show methods that teachers can use to develop those skills.

The Teaching Channel is more than just 5 – 10 minute videos.  It also produces its own professional-development themed TV show, about an hour in length and aired on local PBS stations around the country.  Episodes are a great way to dig a little deeper into a topic or a skill.  You can find several
episodes centered on the Core featured here.

For teachers looking for even more help with the Common Core, NBC focused heavily on the Common Core during its recent
Education Nation Summit.  Along with the programming that they typically feature during the summit, they also conducted a Common Core Institute for the teachers who attended.  The video for these institutes hasn’t been uploaded yet, but when it is, you’ll be able to find it on the Teaching Channel website along with their own CCSS videos.
