“Just like the standards we had in place before we adopted these, the federal government has never reviewed or approved state standards. And they have NOT reviewed or approved these. These are Idaho standards. If the federal government ever tries to approve or regulate these, no one will fight harder than we will.” - Tom Luna, Idaho State Superintendent
Despite often lacking support and clear guidance, math educators are taking steps to refine their practice and adopt creative methods to help at-risk and struggling students make the shift to the new instructional paradigm.
These resources were created to help principals and teacher leaders develop their capacity to facilitate school-based collaborative professional learning focused on teaching and learning. The four units below cover key topics in leading professional learning tied to implementing content standards.
HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) voted to put Pennsylvania Common Core Standards into place and will also require students to meet proficient requirements on either the Keystone Exams, or comparable examinations, in...
Through written guidance sent to schools last week, school administrators learned that all third- to 11th-grade students will take nine online tests - each around an hour in length - for English and math under the new testing system.
Five of the nine will be in English, and four will be in math. Those tests will replace the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests in the two subjects. Students now take one test in English and one in math.
Educators around the country are exploring innovative ways to teach the new common-core literacy standards, and some are calling attention to an approach they say is working well: cross-subject thematic units.
Even though nearly every school in the country is now connected to the Internet, not all of them have the kind of connections that allow teachers and students to make full use of digital learning tools.
Teachers across the country want to personalize learning through technology, districts are putting 1-to-1 computing initiatives in place, tablet devices are flooding into classrooms, and the 2014-15 deadline for online testing under the Common Core State Standards is drawing near. But none of those approaches or plans is possible without high-speed broadband connections."
Marc Tucker - the Common Core State Standards are not a program, like a new drug, to be field-tested. They are a statement of what we want our children to know and be able to do when they graduate from high school and what they ought to know and be able to do at key points along the way to graduation. Our parents and students and teachers need to know what is expected. I can understand why we would want to know how well a strategy for helping students reach our aspirations worked before we asked all our teachers to use it, but don't understand why we would field test our aspirations.
