Contest Seeks Math, ELA Units for Common Core Instruction
Have you created PK-12 lessons aligned with new college- and career-ready standards? Achieve, Inc. wants you to share them—and is offering cash prizes for the best units of study submitted this spring.
The Achieve initiative known as EQuiP (Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products) is collecting instructional units to support the Common Core State Standards in English language arts (ELA)/literacy and math. Units rated exemplary by peer reviewers will win $1,500.
Eligible focus areas for the units include the following:
- Addition and subtraction
- Ratio and proportion
- Speaking and listening
- Supports for English learners
- Topical reading and writing
Exemplar units will be made available for download and use by teachers across the country through the Achieve the Core share site.
Achieve will award prizes in two review cycles, with submission deadlines of March 20 and June 3.
