The Wrong Way to Implement the Common Core
posted by: Cindy Omlin | May 10, 2013, 09:48 PM

Even though the controversy about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is still in full swing, for the vast majority of teachers, the reality is that next year they will be expected to be teaching the standards. At AAE, our desire is to support our teachers through the implementation process and make sure that they have the tools necessary to succeed. Without good implementation of the standards, teachers are being set up for failure.

Teachers today are bombarded with the phrases, "Technology is good!" and "Integrate more technology!" They constantly hear about apps, tablets, 1 to 1 classrooms, and "bring your own device" schemes.

posted by: Cindy Omlin | April 02, 2013, 02:42 AM

All teachers have had that student – the teenage boy whose eyes constantly dart around the classroom, pencil constantly tapping, foot bouncing incessantly under his desk. These cases seem to be business as usual for most educators.

One of the things that stood out among the data released in the recent MetLife survey, was that teachers who collaborate professionally with other teachers are more likely to seek out leadership roles and are more likely to be satisfied with their position.  This information points out yet another reason that having a high-quality professional learning community (PLC) is essential to teaching.

The Teaching Channel is not the first, and probably not the last, site that came up with the idea of providing teachers virtual professional development, but it is among the highest quality. Best of all, it's FREE!
