Do you teach the Common Core?

If you use the Common Core - 
you should have Mastery Connect!

I've been using the MasteryConnect App for a few months now, and I just found out they also have a website!  This is so cool because now I can sign up (for free - or upgrade) and start immediaely connecting with teachers around the country to find 'just-right' activities and assessments that are already aligned to the common core.  It's like "Google for Effective Teachers."  I'm blown away.

Yesterday, my class was discussing text features.  I hopped right on the MasteryConnect site, signed in, and selected my grade level and content area.  I found an amazing assessment to use for my lesson.  Best part - it was free and already created.  I knew it was good because I also searched for 'assessments with the most downloads.'  This way, I figured if a lot of other teachers already downloaded it, it must be great.

Now, I'm excited to start sharing my own content.  I appreciate so much that other teachers are sharing their goodies - it's only right to 'pay it forward.'  By the way, you can send messages and follow teachers who post content you enjoy.  What a lesson planner's dream!
