Projects Aim To Collect Best Common Core Lessons


NPR (6/5, Kamenetz) reports in its “NprEd” blog that “reading and digesting” the Common Core Standards and “determining what lessons best fulfill them is a big, big job” for educators, and describes the controversy surrounding reports on “a few pieces of math homework that weren’t, frankly, particularly high quality, or necessarily well-aligned.” The piece contrasts these reports with projects such as EQUIP (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products), which is an effort “to independently review and rate individual high-quality Core-aligned lessons and make them easier to find.”
