Q & A Collections: Implementing The Common Core

By Larry Ferlazzo — June 23, 2013 1 min read

I’ll begin posting new questions and answers in late August, and during the summer will be sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past two years. You can see those collections from the first year here.

Today’s theme is on implementing the Common Core. The first post in this series was on student motivation.

I’ll be spending the summer organizing questions and answers for the next school year, and there is always room for more!

You can send questions to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send it in, let me know if I can use your real name if it’s selected or if you’d prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

You can also contact me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a variety of education publishers.

And, now, here’s a list of all my posts related to related to implementing the Common Core:

1. Best Ways to Prepare Our Students for CCSS in Language Arts

This post features commentaries from educator/authors Christopher Lehman, Amy Benjamin and Ben Curran.

2. ‘How on Earth Will I Implement’ Common Core for Language Arts?

Teachers Alice Mercer and Dina Strasser contribute their thoughts, as do many readers.

3. Ways To Try Using The CCSS With English Language Learners

This post includes responses from educators Diane Staehr Fenner; William and Pérsida Himmele; Debbie Arechiga; and Julie Dermody.

4. Common Core & ELLs -- Part Two

Along with comments from readers, this post features two special contributions: one from the Understanding Language team at Stanford and the other a joint response from educator/authors Maria G. Dove and Andrea Honigsfeld.

5. Ways To Develop Creative Thinking In The Common Core

Three author educators -- Amy Benjamin, Ben Curran, and Heather Wolpert-Gawron -- contribute guest responses here.

I hope you’ve found this summary useful and, again, keep those questions coming!
