While the Common Core couldn’t be clearer about what to teach, they never quite tackle how to teach. That’s what makes Inquiring into the Common Core such an essential resource. It offers teachers an inquiry-based professional development model for achieving greater understanding of the standards themselves, then determining best ways to realize desired outcomes. Posing questions to stimulate action and higher-level insight, teachers and students engage in a parallel process in service of the very same Common Core goals. The book is their guide, providing
- Tools to systematically study teaching effectiveness while adapting to new standards
- Classroom-ready, student inquiry techniques and strategies to apply within Common Core’s framework
- Real life inquiry-implementation examples from a high-need, high-poverty school
