Kaplan, Sandra N.
Gifted Child Today, v37 n2 p126-127 Apr 2014
The author describes key issues and uncommon concerns about the Common Core State Standards that fit within two categories: philosophical and pedagogical. Philosophically, Common Core State K-12 Standards should not be expected to be mastered at a specific grade level but based on developmental readiness. Pedagogically, Common Core State Standards need to be taught using inquiry or discovery, and independent study strategies, rather than direct instructional strategies.
