Here is a new resources to support your work in revising curriculum and deepening understanding of how instruction can lead to greater student achievement. We just uploaded these to the IDEportal from insight 1 of Dr. Sulla’s book, It’s Not What You Teach But How: 7 Insights to Making the CCSS Work for You.

“Ends-Based Teaching” means first identifying the actual end goal of the standard and then addressing the means of getting there. Teaching to the means falls short of engaging students in grappling with the end goal.

The IDEportal has a set of graphic organizers related to “Ends-Based Teaching” that you can use. Log in or click through the Demo button to access it. Feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might benefit from it and let me know what you think.

Rigor as a system: 

▪ Rigor: not only higher-order lessons; it must focus on students’ learning, which requires→

▪ Differentiation: not only a choice of activities; it must include deliberate learning vs. practice activities following a cognitive progression, which requires→

▪ Student Responsibility: not only giving students freedom and power, it must build executive function beyond compliance, which requires→

▪ Engagement: not only hands-on activities and group work, it must include minds-on activities that challenge students at higher levels of rigor.

Some inspiring words from Dr. Sulla’s second book, It’s Not What You Teach But How: 7 Insights To Making the CCSS Work for You (available on June 3rd...just 13 days away).


▪ “The CCSS can be summed up in two words: understanding and application.”

▪ “The CCSS do not address how to acquire new knowledge nor how to motivate students to learn a given skill, concept, or piece of information. That’s what this book is about.”

▪ “Without executive function, you cannot achieve the level of mastery required by the CCSS.”

▪ “Every subject area can be viewed as a language and taught as such.”
