Common Core Standards

Links to this post
We will be incorporating some Common Core elements into our website. The shift to the Common Core actually moves teachers away from individualized worksheets and more into groups and connecting students to technology and resources where interaction is required. Well, at least that's how I would think deeper concepts and interaction with texts would best be taught.

Let's be realistic --doing some worksheets may not require engaging in deeper critical thinking! The Common Core classroom is more than students sitting at a desk doing a worksheet.

So, how do we use the worksheets as part of a new and engaging process?  Do worksheets still have a role in the classroom?  If so, what encourages the learner to experience learning on a deeper level and how can that be reflected in our worksheets?

 As all good things, worksheets in the world of education are changing. Let's explore together how that must happen.
