Another lesson in implementing the CCSS: Remember this is new

Here's another lesson in our "Implementing the Common Core" series from Insight Education's Dr. Michael Moody and Syracuse Superintendent Sharon Contreras.

Lesson: Remember this is new.

Dr. Moody: Give teachers the time and support they need to internalize this change, work with others to refine their practice with the standards, and break the work up into manageable chunks at the district and school levels. 

Superintendent Contreras: It’s important for us to be innovative in how we provide time, resources and administrative support for teachers. Otherwise, we will continue to hear about constraints rather than the awesome possibilities of the CCSS.   
Go directly to the source: teachers and building leaders are engaged in this work every day and have the most important insights into refining teaching and increasing student learning.
