• Common Core 

    The Common Core are a set of national standards adopted by most states. 

    These standards are designed to reflect the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. A common set of learning goals helps teachers and parents ensure students are challenged and making appropriate progress. Benchmarked against international standards, the Common Core Standards assist students in their preparation to compete in a global economy. 

    Common Core means:

           - "I Can" statements

           - research projects

           - daily group discussions 

           - critical thinking

           - technology                                                

           - project based learning
