Common Core is pretty basic but I do not believe it is enough. There are skills that are left out that need our attention. Local historical and cultural skills is information students need to get. The cross- walk between state standards and Common Core is going to be a very important part of the transition to CC.
We as teachers need to step up and take ownership of the translation of common core in our own curriculum plan for the year. Yes it is going to be work but by using road maps and discussing “essential questions” will help to provide a base of student learning that will make more sense than a maligned once a year test and grade report.
