Three Key Ideas for Parents about the Common Core State Standards
Thinking Deeply – The Common Core emphasizes critical thinking. It requires students to analyze more, discuss more, evaluate more, justify more and explain their thinking and understanding deeply, especially in writing. Take-Away: Really thinking deeply is hard. Let it BE hard, help your child talk it out.
Integrating Learning – The Common Core emphasizes learning across disciplines; reading with math and social studies standards combined into one task for example. Students spend more time working together with different settings, structures and tools. Take-Away: Problems and solutions happen everyday in the real world.
Showing How They Know – The Common Core emphasizes proof and evidence. Students will be required to explain and show their work and how they arrived at answers. There is more than one way to solve math problems, for example. Take-Away: The new tests will require students to explain how they know.
