Myths vs. Facts | Common Core State Standards Initiative | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

The following myths and facts aim to address common misconceptions about the development, intent, content, and implementation of the standards.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Common standards, in whatever we understand their design, are mediated in the classroom if learning happens. Teachers and students bring their curricula, in the form of autobiographies and expectations with them, into the classrooms. These are lenses and filters which act on any curricula designed and prescribed from outside the classroom.

Good start. Also relevance to the student.

Rigor across curriculum content, not just a particular subject matter is essential to effective teaching and learning. It is knowing what rigor is in order to determine if it exists.

This iactually the second article of a series . This is a  word used frequently, but it's definition varies.  I  think rigor need to also differentiate , say, reading levels so each learner is challenged from the level they are currently at. Rigor does not mean, "one size fits all!"
