Which Path for the Common Core?

Which Path for the Common Core? | Hale's Common Core State Standards | Scoop.it

As educators across the country implement the Common Core State Standards, we see two paths emerging ... and diverging.

 

The first path treats the common core as just another set of standards to implement and assess. Educators jump straight to the grade-level requirements and map them to their curricula in a compliance-driven exercise. It starts to look a lot like what we’ve been doing with the No Child Left Behind Act for the last 10 years—a narrowed curriculum focused more on test scores than on college and career readiness.

 

The second path leverages the strengths of the common core to transform teaching and learning. It entails educators’ taking the time to understand what is visionary about these new standards and how they can help drive college and career success for students.

 

We are concerned that if the first path becomes the norm, the common core will represent a missed opportunity in U.S. education that will set us back decades.
