What does a Common Core classroom look like?

Trying to paint a picture for your parents, school board members or community leaders of what school looks like with the new standards in math and English language arts?

In this new publication, “Seeing the Future: How the Common Core Will Affect Mathematics and English Language Arts in Grades 3-12 Across America,” the Center for K-12 Assessment and Performance Management at ETS gives parents, school board members and the public a detailed look at how educators from across the country are incorporating the new standards and shifting their instruction. Featuring Maine DOE’s own English Language Arts Specialist Morgan Dunton talking about critical thinking and close reading of literature (look for her on pages 18-23), the report explains what is being taught at different grade levels and shows examples of test questions to illustrate the new standards and the content and skills they measure.
