Which Path for the Common Core?

Which Path for the Common Core? | Common_Core_State_Standards | Scoop.it
Educators should use the common-core standards as a springboard to deeper learning in schools, Ken Kay and Bob Lenz write.
Danielle K. Vogel's insight:

#CCSS is more than test preparation like NCLB.  It's an opportunity to change the focus of teaching and learning to one of critical thinking/understanding, questionning, facilitation of ideas and understandings critical to students who are entering the 21st Century workplace.

As someone who works for a company that provides professional development, I agree. Have a plan and understand that just as one-size-fits-all teaching is not appropriate for your students, neither is one-size-fits-all professional development appropriate for your teachers. They are professionals (hence professional development) not assembly line products.

Brad Ermeling is one smart guy; great research mind and experience so some interesting things to say that may serve to inform the way people think about PLCs but also about Common Core.

Don't make me say this again: Common Core does NOT mean the end of poetry in English classes. If you don't believe me, read this article. AND, there are poems for math and science and social studies and music and art so teachers and students will find evidence of several of the Anchor Standards for Reading and even a few Standards for Mathematical Practice through poetry. #commoncore #ccss

The Common Core State Standards can be a little overwhelming if you look at them as a whole. In order to truly master the standards it is key that you have a plan of attack.

Mel I thought this was cute but I couldn't go along with the Learn Ninja's second bullet: "take a quick look at the standards in the grades above and below." What do you think about a DEEPER look and pointed, thoughtful planning with teachers on either side of your grade level. That way, I think teachers get at what the standards intend for them to do. Just my two cents. PS: You're an amazing ScoopIteer! I appreciate your work. :)
