Harvard Education Letter: Nine Ways Common Core Will Change Classroom Practice

Harvard Education Letter: Nine Ways Common Core Will Change Classroom Practice | Common Core State Standards SMUSD | Scoop.it

There's good news and bad news for supporters of the Common Core State Standards. The good news is that the vast majority of teachers have read the Standards and nearly all like them. The bad news is that about 80 percent of mathematics teachers said the Standards were “pretty much the same” as their current state standards.

 

Those teachers might want to take a closer look. While the Common Core State Standards share many features and concepts with existing standards, the new standards also represent a substantial departure from current practice in a number of respects.
