The Common Core is coming. Are you ready?
By Tyler on March 28th, 2012
This is one in a series of posts examining the Common Core State Standards and the conversation surrounding their impact on teaching and learning.
Well, last week (in case you missed it), we released a treasure trove of data collected from the “Primary Sources” survey of 10,000 teachers we did with the Gates Foundation. I thought I’d share some what teachers said about the Common Core.
- 78 percent of teachers said they were aware of the Common Core State Standards.
- Many do not feel prepared to teach to the standards. 27 percent said they feel unprepared, and 51 percent said they felt only “somewhat prepared.”
- A large majority of teachers feel they need additional tools and supports to implement the standards: from student-centered technology to PD to formative assessments to new curricula and learning tools.
Teachers: Are you talking about the Common Core standards in your schools? Do you feel like you understand them and are prepared?
