Diane Ravitch: Wrong on the Common Core

 What we most need now is not cold feet, but high quality examinations, first-rate curriculum and instructional resources and high quality training for our teachers in the use of those standards, instructional resources and assessment systems.  It will take years of determined effort to develop all that infrastructure and years more to implement it effectively.  And there is no time to waste.

Wonderopolis has a not only a "Wonder of the Day" but a drop down menu that allows you to search for short lessons on Folktales/Fairytales, Poetry, Science and Social Studies, and much much more.  Steps to get there: Select a "Wonder" from the drop down box, then naviagate across "Did you know"(sets the lesson up), "Try it" (student work ideas), and "Wonderwords" (vocab related to task).
