How Common Core Standards Kill Creative Teaching | Opinion | US News & World Report

How Common Core Standards Kill Creative Teaching | Opinion | US News & World Report | Middle School Math | Scoop.it

I once saw an eighth grader who was on the verge of being tossed out of his middle school even though he was one of the brightest kids there. When asked why he was failing, he said, “Why should I be doing the same frickin' thing since I was in third grade?" Another student I heard about could comprehend the whole "Harry Potter" series before she was 11 and read two novels a week, yet thinks she “sucks at English” because she is more nuanced in her thinking than the questions on standardized tests allow. She learned to hate reading.

 

Why did this happen to them? The answer lies in the drive to commonize education.

 

At first glance, the curriculum standards known as Common Core look appealing. Who could be against improved critical thinking and communication skills or more progressive, student centered teaching? Who could be against collaborative thinking and reflective learning or being "college and career ready"?

 

 

But as teacher-blogger Jose Vilson, puts it, "People who advocate for the [Common Core standards] miss the bigger picture. ... [They] came as a package deal with the new teacher evaluations, higher stakes testing, and austerity measures, including school closings." The Common Core is just the last of a series of politicized and incentivized business models inappropriately being applied to education.

This article had interesting information about common core that if it's true it's sad to hear. Talking about the fact that when common core was created no k-12 teacher was involved in the creation of the program.

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 31, 2015 9:57 AM

I believe the common core is a new set of curriculum standards.  I am positive that through years of trial and error, their will be facets changes to the common core that will help smooth it out a curriculum.  Teachers and educator should start looking at the positives of the common core and not the negatives.

"At its simplest, a flipped format can involve a teacher inviting students to view YouTube videos at home as a preview to the day's topic. At its most rigorous, a flipped curriculum involves teachers writing, producing, directing, editing, and posting their own original lessons -- complete with custom narrations and visualizations -- via third-party applications."

Won Ho's curator insight, August 15, 2014 3:01 AM

Why should the video watching previous to in-class? The core is quality video access and intensive in-class interaction. The lecture can't complete with these superb ones.

 

꼭 뒤집어야만 하는가? 내게 플립러닝의 핵심은 수준 높은 비디오와 강력한 상호작용이다. 순서와 방식은 여러 가지가 가능하다. 선생님이 개념 설명 행위는 여기 비디오를 보면 조만간 사라질 게 당연해 보인다.
