    Verbena Schools in Chilton County, Alabama, held "A Showcase of Learning," open to parents of all of their students, K-12, on April 22, 2015. The purpose of the event was to allow the kids to present what they've been learning since the transition to Alabama's College and Career Ready Standards (based on Common Core State Standards). This showcase clearly illustrates how the ACCRS, especially for English Language Arts, is applied across the curriculum, helping students obtain more that knowledge of a subject, but a deeper understanding of the content they are learning.

        Series 3, Webinar 5. February 25, 2015 Presenters:Kathy DiRanna, K-12 Alliance Statewide Director, WestEd; Maria Simani, Executive Director, California Science Project In this webinar, we present essential features of the science practices outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards that offer opportunities for students to develop disciplinary literacy. We explore how reading, writing, listening, and speaking are used in the science discipline to develop knowledge of scientific ideas as well as the ways in which scientists develop that knowledge. Particular emphasis is given to the NGSS practices of "Constructing Explanations" and "Engaging in Argument Form Evidence" and how the Common Core State Standards ELA/Literacy in Science support or contrast these practices. Examples are drawn from middle and high school students' writings of scientific explanations and how argumentation strengthened those explanations. Furthermore, we show scientific literature that provides opportunities to compare writing requirements and address classroom strategies.
