It's important that the entire school set goals, help teachers implement strategies that meet the standards, and also meet the students where they are so they can be pushed further.

Not the most recent post on Common Core Implementation, but truly practical and necessary! Sometimes in our quest for new, we overlook good.

Saberes Sin Fronteras Ong's curator insight, February 9, 9:29 AM

Es todavía un problema central en la Educación la de ayudar al escolar a "comprender" lo que lee. Los maestros, agobiados quizá por horas y horas de clase, no suelen continuar estudiando las nuevas metodologías que claramente ayudan a mejorar esta capacidad.
