Common Core Standards

Recently in education the State of Pennsylvania, along with many other states across the US, are looking to implement Common Core  Standards (   The standards would define the rigorous skills and knowledge that need to be effectively taught and learned for kids to succeed in college and the workforce.

The standards are created to be:

–          Fewer , clearer and of higher caliber

–          Aligned with college and work expectations

–          Envelops higher order thinking skills for the 21st century

–          Internationally benchmarked for the global economy

–          Research and evidence based

The standards will also provide guidance for schools to design curricula and instructional materials that will help to build the high level cognitive demands – reasoning, justification, synthesis, analysis and problem-solving.

The greatest thing about Common Core Standards is the global/international reach , the consistency and rigor they provide!
