I ran across this SHORT little article on twitter the other night about the biggest shift of common core. It probably needs to be shared with ALL teachers across America. It might put an end to the regurgitation style of teaching that is so prominent in many classrooms. You know where we teach ALL of the content to the students, give them a study guide, and they take a test on what we poured into their little brains. GUILTY as charged of having done this in the past.
This year I am REALLY trying to change HOW I teach and HOW they learn. Is it hard? YES. Do I want to give up sometimes? YES. Am I doing it completely right? NO.
Am I trying? Yes. 🙂
How have you changed your practice since the adoption and implementation of common core?
