A recent commentary piece called “Give the Standards Back to Teachers” was featured in Education Week. The article shares that a lot of people have played a role in the development and implementation of standards through the years, but ultimately, it is the teachers who need to own the standards—and the teachers are responsible for making sure that the standards affect student learning.
The Common Core State Standards are a hot topic. Clearly there is a lot to learn, and many teachers will be modifying their teaching to make sure those standards are met. Atomic TechCore is designed to help educators seamlessly plan their curriculum around the new standards. Through new lessons and help modifying existing lesson plans, Atomic TechCore can help teachers collaborate with school leaders to transition to new standards.
