susanne bowen's insight:
I really dislike how the CCS are being highlighted as a "new approach". Math is math is math! With the common core we are simply trying to align the order in which we teach concepts and give those concepts more time to be developed at each level. The CCSS will be a living document, made to be adjusted. Every teacher may still have their own "approach" hopefully one that involves understanding from the learner. And yes, sometimes memorization is part of understanding. If you can retrieve a concept fluently, your brain is free for developing deeper understanding. If you do not have the basic facts (for whatever level you are on) deeper learning becomes quite difficult. We should not be memorizing things we do not understand. I believe that is the critical difference between the goals of CCSS and some other math models.
I was shocked yesterday when I came across news that the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police came out in support of the Common Core State Standards. Why in the world would police officers inject themselves into an education policy debate?

Where is the proof that CC will not work to improve education? We all see CCSS as change or there would not be so much controversy. When will people get brave enough to get off the dead horse and and move on?

'Merge' is the last part of a project series 'Empty, Dense, Merge' which explores two opposite feelings through the photos of places located in USA. In this project two opposite places are merged into one: New York City, where, it seems like everyone wants to live there, and Grand Canyon / Death Valley, which are unlivable."
