The Common Core: Everything You Need to Know to Succeed
Cleaver, Samantha
Instructor, v121 n1 p55-57 2011
In 2008, the Council for Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association started discussing the possibility of moving away from separate state standards. State education leaders were concerned that existing state standards weren't rigorous enough. So, in 2009, 48 states signed on to develop the Common Core State Standards, and in June 2010, the standards were finalized. Now, each state that has adopted the standards is working on its own timeline toward full implementation by 2014-2015. The overarching goal of the Common Core standards is to improve the academic achievement of American students. This article offers tips on how to refocus one's instruction around higher standards.
