Mark Anderson & The Common Core

We teachers are pats of butter skittering across a hot skillet every time the Common Core comes up these days. From the distaste of the Badass Teacher’s Association and their Luddite response to the CCSS, to the uproar over Tony Bennett’s recent political mishap, The CCSS is becoming a bucket to kick and that needs to stop. The standards are high quality. They are also young and unproven. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not worth the necessary rigor to implement and to do so well.

NYC Teaching Fellow, and also, fellow LearnZillion Dream Team member, Mark Anderson speaks on this with aplomb on his blog. Have a look and give me your feedback.
