Deb Gardner's curator insight, January 12, 2014 8:16 AM

One of the best articles I've read - just the facts about how common standards started, why they started and how the standards movement has progressed. There appears to be so much miscommunication, distrust and politics involved.

Chiappetta: Common Core is common sense

Chiappetta: Common Core is common sense | Common Core | Scoop.it

The Common Core is a set of “standards” or expectations for what we want all young people to be able to know and do. Instead of every state expecting something a little (or a lot) different, the Common Core sets the same bar for all. Under these common standards, the expectations for reading in kindergarten or math in eighth grade are the same high standards for kids in Pawtucket and Cumberland, for students in Massachusetts and Mississippi. In a highly mobile and interconnected society, different standards in different states makes little sense at all.

Type “geometry lessons for high school” into Google and you’ll get 4 million results. For any teacher, that’s a daunting and basically useless collection. Hours can be wasted looking for the right lesson to fit one’s teaching style.
