Q & A Collections: Implementing The Common Core
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 [email protected].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:
