Where states are making or buying their own tests, how do we know they are aligned with #CommonCore

"One may presume that the tests currently being prepared by the two consortia of states are closely aligned with the standards. But in cases where states are making or buying their own tests, there is less assurance."

Common Core as a vehicle to bring three fundamental rights to all students

Common Core as a vehicle to bring three fundamental rights to all students | Common Core State Standards Planning - amartell | Scoop.it

by Kathleen Porter-Magee at the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

 

"I want to talk about the Common Core as a vehicle to bring three fundamental rights to all students, but particularly our Latino and ELL students:

1.      First, this is about the right of all students to read the authentic, complex texts.

2.      Second, it’s about giving all students access to the vocabulary of power—the academic vocabulary we know students need to succeed.

3.      Finally, it’s about giving all students the support they need to exceed the expectations we’ve set."

Vanessa Chaparro's curator insight, December 8, 2013 8:22 PM

Common Core is a topic that has been in the news a lot lately because it has promises and flaws that are beginning to show. Yes it is nice to have the same curriculum being taught on the east and west coast of the U.S. , but that is not sufficient because not every teacher may have had the proper training. Even if mathematics is standarized, it does not mean that students will be standarized to intake the information. Some students like math and those will succeed no matter what level they are taught. Math standards will however establish a descent level to seem appropriate for the general student.

The Missing Link in School Reform (SSIR)

The Missing Link in School Reform (SSIR) | Common Core State Standards Planning - amartell | Scoop.it
American educators, policymakers, and philanthropists are overselling the role of the highly skilled individual teacher and undervaluing the benefits that come from teacher collaborations.
Amy Martell's insight:

This is very interesting to me thanks to my friend Christina Reed!  Love the idea of social capital as a link in school reform... After speaking with PA teacher of the year Ryan Devlin I realize how connected teachers seem to excel in educational areas. It seems the more socially connected the more innovations are present.  Geograpical isolation does not prohibit great teachers when they are socially connected!
