The Common Core Classroom: Effective Teaching

We sat down with master teachers and experts and asked them to share (on video) their thoughts about what it really takes to be an effective teacher with the new Common Core standards. On this page, you’ll also find top articles about the Common Core standards, video that provides an overview of the standards and links to professional development webcasts.

Common Core Basics

The Common Core State Standards are: (1) research and evidence based, (2) aligned with college and work expectations, (3) rigorous, and (4) internationally benchmarked. They aim to enable students to read, write, speak, listen and use language effectively in a variety of content areas.
