Teachers Hold Common Core Forum And Seek Support of Parents

Teachers Hold Forum to Show Parents Common Core is Working and Backers of the Common Core Standards Seek Out the Support of Parents. 

"GUILFORD: George Cooksey doesn’t care whether Derek Jeter is better than Xander Bogaerts. That wasn’t the point of his visit.

But when Cooksey, chairman of the English Department at Guilford High School, sat in on a group of third-graders at Calvin Leete Elementary School, it was the quality of the arguments about the best shortstop in baseball that struck him — a trait he says comes in part from the effects of the Common Core standards."

Common Core and Parent Questions - The web site linked below has valuable information for anyone wanting to learn more about the Common Core Education Standards that is now being implemented in many Connecticut public schools.

 "As teachers work to implement the Common Core Academic Standards, parents may have questions about what the standards include, how they affect their children's learning, and where to find more information. An article by Sean Cavanaugh, "Standards Backers Seek Out Support of Parents," from Education Week, acknowledges concerns that some have regarding the standards, and also includes an overview of the implementation efforts of different organizations, links to resources, and parent road maps to share with your students' parents, and video presentations for teachers." There is much more information at the Education Week link above.

 Some of those organizations, including the National Parent Teacher Association, are also staging workshops for parents in schools, community centers, churches, colleges, YMCAs, and other settings around the country.

The PTA, which has 5 million members, says that it has already sponsored presentations for about 35,000 parents and members of the general public.
