The Common Core State Standards are poised to bring some of the most meaningful changes to our education system in a generation, some observers say, and with the emphasis on literacy, resources, and critical thinking, it’s no surprise that librarians are embracing the Common Core as an extraordinary opportunity.

Research Instruction: Who Decided It Should Be A Tremendous Bore?

Research Instruction: Who Decided It Should Be A Tremendous Bore? | Common Core Tools & Resources | 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.

White Paper: Project-Based vs. Problem-Based Learning: Which Is Better for the Common Core? > Eye On Education | Common Core Tools & Resources | Scoop.it

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) place an emphasis on process, not just content. Yes, teaching content knowledge is important, but it's even more important to teach the learning process, so students become independent learners who can obtain knowledge on their own.
