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 four years. You can see all those collections from the first three years here.

Today's theme - the third one in this summer series - is on implementing the Common Core.

Previous updated thematic collections are:

Classroom Management

Student Motivation

You can see the list of Common Core posts following this excerpt from one of them:
