States and school districts are struggling to navigate the flood of new materials claiming to be Common Core-aligned.
I am faced with this exact problem next year. The old curriculum is going away and there’s nothing to replace it. Instead, I’ve been told to meet certain student outcomes with ZERO materials. I don’t have an issue with the standards but students, staff, and schools are not ready to meet them yet. And here’s the icing on the cake… I’ve been told several times that my “job is on the line” based on student test scores next year.
