Advice on Incorporating the Core in a Single Classroom
Seeing the Core in action through the Teaching Channel videos has been very inspiring. As a 2nd year teacher, I remember being introduced to the Core in my teacher training program. The district and state in which I teach has not yet adopted the Common Core Standards. I just am in awe of the level of rigor the students in the videos respond to. My students keep me searching for ways to give them more. How would one begin to incorporate the Core Standards into his/her classroom, even though he/she is not expected to use this framework? How would I meld these standards with my state's standards? Where could I find resources (research, lesson plans, assessments)? I believe my students can do just about anything, but could my own exploration of the Core be successful if my students have not been exposed to them previously? I feel like to be successfully implemented and produce the desired results, using the Core must be a team effort.
