Teachers and Common Standards

With all the chatter about common standards, I've been wondering how a set of agreed-upon standards would affect teachers and assessments, my primary coverage areas here at Ed Week.

I wrote a little while ago about some possible implications for testing. But I'm really in the dark about what it will mean for teachers.

So, teachers, tell us, what's it like to go through the process of having your state standards overhauled? Were you supported in helping to make sense of them? Were you given updated tools and curricula? And what do you make of the conversations around common standards?
