Why I like the Common Core

Why I like the Common Core | Motivating Minds | Scoop.it

I like the Common Core Standards.  There.  I said it.

 

 It seems as though every time I’ve turned around this week there has been a new post condemning the switch of so many states to the Common Core and the fact that it is being pushed through in a highly centralized, top down approach.  While I cannot argue many of the points in the well thought out posts from education bloggers such as Diane Ravitch and Carol Burris, I can see positive changes happening between the walls of our school that will benefit our students due to the Common Core Standards.  Although I would ultimately like our school to do well on standardized tests including the looming PARCC as much as any other principal, that is not ultimately what motivates me or any other educator I know…  The simple test for your Common Core implementation and any effort within your school is, “Is this good for kids?”  In our school, with our students, I would answer “Yes!”

Many teachers are being called to teach these skills, and don't know how to. I've done many workshops with teachers to arm them with these skills. However, there is one issue that seems to be a roadblock for true implementation: assessment.
