In this post, we liken getting to know the Common Core Standards to getting to know a person. We discuss how at first our relationship is driven by our first impression and then as new understandings reveal themselves, our understanding changes.
In this post, we begin to share our own thoughts about what we think the Common Core standards mean for the next generation of teaching and learning literacy. A is for agency.
In this post, we share our second thought about what the Common Core really means for literacy instruction and learning–we must balance our instructional structures to nurture well-balanced reading processes.
In this post, we share our third thought about what the Common Core standards really mean for the next generation of literacy teaching and learning–complexity. Because this is a complex document, we need to be prepared for several generations of ideas for implementation.
