Pedagogy and the CCSS
Aspen Institute
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) spell out for teachers what their students must learn in order to be authentically literate. By focusing on the capacities of students, the CCSS does not advocate one particular pedagogical approach over another for achieving these goals. Teachers are given wide latitude to exercise their professional judgment in how they assist children in acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills to read and write effectively and think critically about what they hear and believe. In short, the purpose of the standards is not to specify how teachers should teach, but rather identify what all students are expected to learn from their teachers such that they will achieve college and career readiness.
