Last year's national NCLE study, Remodeling Literacy Learning: Make Room for What Works, indicated that working together is working smarter—educators’ most powerful professional learning experiences come from working with their colleagues.
This year, NCLE set out to investigate how this idea plays out when implementing the new Common Core State Standards in literacy. Are schools and districts taking a capacity-building or incentive-drivenapproach to putting the new standards in place? And how are these approaches impacting progress?
The findings from this nationwide survey of over 3,000 classroom teachers are striking.
