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 -- today's collection is on implementing the common core and last week's focus was on student motivation -- bringing together responses on similar topics from the past three years. You can see those collections from the first two years here.

I'll be alternating these collections with interviews I'm doing with authors about their new education books.  The first one of these was with educator Meenoo Rami.

Also, Education Week has published a collection of posts from this blog -- along with new material -- in an ebook form.  It's titled Classroom Management Q&As: Expert Strategies for Teaching.

I've recently begun recording a weekly eight-minute BAM! Radio podcast with educators who provide guest responses to questions.  You can listen and/or download them here.

Lastly, 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, following an excerpt from one of those posts, here's a list of all my posts related to implementing the Common Core:
