Supporting the Transition to Common Core State Standards
IRRE President, Dr. James Connell, and Director of Field Operations, Dr. Julie Broom, recently contributed to a discussion series titled "Implementing the Common Core State Standards." This series is being hosted by the Opportunity Equation - a collaboration between the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Institute for Advanced Study that "promotes equity and excellence in mathematics and science education."
You can read Dr. Connell and Dr. Broom's contribution and the entire series here, and find out more about the discussion in the introduction below.
"Forty-six states have adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M), with implementation scheduled to begin this school year. This set of discussion pieces, authored by individuals working in a range of positions across public education - from a CA classroom teacher to NY State Education Commissioner - explores a sampling of approaches and perspectives about the professional development needs of current teachers called for by CCSS-M."
