The standards themselves have never been the sole issue. One of the major problems in my mind is the testing which ultimately drives curriculum. Could I suggest that you look at some of the WEB PAGES and VIDEOS in the links on these two pages.

We hear so much in the abstract about common core.

 

A second grade teacher in my district wanted to “make it real” for me – and she did!

 

She put together a packet of some of her pre-common core classroom assignments with comparison to the same assignments post-common core.

 

I thought some of you might be interested to see the difference that common core has brought to one second grade class in Bountiful. 

 

See attached -- it was compiled for me by the teacher.
