Video: Introducing the Common Core State Standards

(MUSIC) As educators, we hear the term Common Core almost daily. But the question remains, what exactly is the Common Core? What does this mean for me as an educator? And what does this ultimately mean for my students? The Common Core is simply that, it is a core set of standards that were created to determine what our students need to be college and career ready by the end of their twelfth grade year. Furthermore, the Common Core also addresses how can our students be competitive in a global economy? Teachers often ask, how are the Common Core State Standards developed? A lot of people have the misconception that they were developed by the government and that states have to adopt them.

Introducing the Common Core State Standards

(MUSIC) As educators, we hear the term Common Core almost daily. But the question remains, what exactly is the Common Core? What does this mean for me as an educator? And what does this ultimately mean for my students? The Common Core is simply that, it is a core set of standards that were created to determine what our students need to be college and career ready by the end of their twelfth grade year. Furthermore, the Common Core also addresses how can our students be competitive in a global economy? Teachers often ask, how are the Common Core State Standards developed? A lot of people have the misconception that they were developed by the government and that states have to adopt them.

The reality is, is the states noticed a need in our educational system and they chose to come together and develop these Common Core State Standards. The states then, can choose, they can volunteer to adopt the Common Core. In addition to adopting the Common Core, the states also get to choose what year they implement them. The Common Core was originally published in June 2010. And while in the first two years, a lot of states adopted the Common Core. This school year, the 2013, 2014 school year is when most states have officially implemented the Common Core and our students will now start seeing these practices inside the classroom.

When the Common Core was being developed the goal was to move away from the inch deep, mile wide mentality to more of a focused standardized set of goals that our students can work on to be college and career ready. This doesn't just talk about content knowledge. It also addresses student performance. What should our students be able to do in order to compete in a global economy after high school? There are also some limitations of the Common Core. English Language Learners are not addressed in the Common Core state standards. Also, if you have students with an IEP, the Common Core does not tell us how to modify or accommodate those students.

You as an educator need to rely on your expertise to make the Common Core real for these students in your own classroom. Now that we understand a little bit about the development of the Common Core, lets go ahead and dive into understanding the standards themselves.
