Are You Prepared for the Common Core Standards? This is the question posed in the latest edition of Education Week Teacher.
I encourage you to read how five classroom teachers from around the nation answered that question. Their responses include information on the importance of the 8 Mathematical Practices; the importance of sequence, pace, and support resources; how critical teacher collaboration will be in the implementation of the standards; and how the standards encourage us to let go of the control, thereby creating student centered classrooms and independent learners.
I really couldn’t have said it any better!
