The right curriculum for kindergarten: Play

The right curriculum for kindergarten: Play | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

The standards were designed to elevate the quality of instruction in our country: to teach students to think independently, grapple with difficult texts, solve problems and explain their thinking in a clear and compelling way. This is a noble vision. But its attainment depends entirely on the execution.

Catherine Schmidt's curator insight, March 9, 2013 10:25 PM

From this piece, "In our schools, we prioritize teacher development over curriculum development. You do not make teachers better by handing them a packaged curriculum and sending them to a few days of training. Instead, teachers need time to analyze the standards, practice different teaching strategies, learn from mentors, collaborate with colleagues, observe one another, look at student work together, reflect on why certain approaches work better than others, learn from mistakes and continually improve. None of this is fast or easy. But it is how teachers become great."

Research Instruction: Who Decided It Should Be A Tremendous Bore? | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

The Common Core has devoted an entire strand of the Writing standards to research ...and the tests that are chugging on down the track toward us aim to make research skills a big portion of how students are assessed.Meaning, students will be expected to be independent with these skills, not co-dependent. Not expecting us to dole out each bit.
