In 2012 ISKME initiated the Primary Source Project (PSP), working with educators across four states. The goal of the project was to address educator needs for discoverability and engagement with high quality, openly licensed primary sources, particularly informational texts, that support the cross-subject literacy shifts called for by the new U.S. education standards, the Common Core State Standards. Through the project, participating educators selected and critiqued a set of informational texts, and developed cross-subject, wraparound lessons that support students' ability to access, critically analyze, and build evidence-based arguments from texts. Based on examination of the lesson building process, an instructional design pathway tool was created - with openly licensed professional learning materials and lesson exemplars - to support future educators in selecting and sequencing informational texts, and in collaborating with colleagues across subjects to create integrated lessons around those texts. This presentation will discuss how this model can be used to support OER adoption in K-12 by demonstrating the necessary teacher collaboration needed to integrate the new standards across disciplines, to enable feedback loops and knowledge sharing around Common Core instructional shifts, and to leverage digital technology and openly licensed content to fill curriculum needs.
