A teacher's reflection on her introduction to Common Core:
I thought I understood the very basics of the Common Core learning standards going into my three-day workshop. I knew I didn't have a strong grip on what they meant for me as a teacher or for my students, but I figured once I learned a little, I'd get it. I have heard teachers in the recent past say, "Oh, yeah, I understand the Common Core. Not worried. I already do so much of this in my class." I am here to say emphatically NO YOU DON'T.
