Common Core: the truth about the development, standards and curriculum
Washington Times
WASHINGTON, November 19, 2013 — The only thing “common” about Common Core these days is the opposition to it.

12 Rules The Best Teachers Live By - Huffington Post

12 Rules The Best Teachers Live By - Huffington Post | Core curriculum | Scoop.it

"The brilliant educators featured in American Teacher represent a wide assortment of backgrounds, academic subjects, experience levels, scholastic environments, and student demographics. Yet regardless of their many outward differences, there are certain shared ideas and principles about teaching that can be gleaned from all their profiles. I've gathered this group of precepts into the Twelve Rules for Being a True Classroom Hero. Of course there are no absolutes when it comes to defining the formula for great teaching (see Rule #1 as case in point!), but what follows is an excellent starting place."

Ted Caron's comment, October 31, 2013 10:35 AM
Check out Zimba's comments from 53:00-55:00 re: "fuzzy math" and Smarter Balanced. The fact that one of the architects of the math standards has a serious problem with kids ONLY being able to explain and not correctly solve problems should lead us to believe that CCSS is not just about process. Right?

Mission Statement

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, September 9, 2013 4:04 PM

Wow! Don't know how to respond when teachers say "It's not MY job" regarding literacy skills? Need a professional, well thought out answer to why taking higher levels of math in high school helps achievement in general? It's in here-- and so is everything else you wanted to know about Common Core.

Rufus Hannah's curator insight, October 5, 2013 6:29 PM

We are piloting Common Core resources with elementary students at my school. We are realizing the challenges of working without textbooks - how much teachers need to know about lesson design along with assessment for and of learning.
