      How does CCSS provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn? Who is in charge of this curriculum?

    This is the homepage for the Common Core Standards. All standards k-12 are presented and organized by grade-level and content area. You may want to review the standards and highlight the standards you will need to address. You can then print out those standards you need to address.

Alfie Kohn Rejects National Standards : Constructing Modern Knowledge - 36 views

  •  
    Brian Silverman says, "It should be required reading for anyone concerned with democracy and long-term viability of public education. I've often said that national standards, even those thinly disguised under mischievous pseudonyms like "common core standards" are not only a destructive force, but a solution in search of a problem. Alfie Kohn makes the case quite effectively. Mr. Kohn once again demonstrates his courage, tenacity and chutzpah by publishing his new article in Education Week's special "Quality Counts" issue. "Quality Counts" is the annual issue sponsored by standardized testing companies who rank each state's educational quality as a function of their reliance on high-stakes testing, teacher-bashing, punitive and anti-democratic education policies. The more draconian the state, the higher their "quality," according to Education Week."
