My thoughts on the impact of Common Core

FOR TEACHERS it means deepening their knowledge of their own disciplines and developing their own pedagogical approach. Also, it means teachers will have to transition to a curriculum that is far more skill-based while also requiring significantly greater rigor of texts and content.

FOR STUDENTS it translates to more personalized learning opportunities, and more of a meta-cognitive process, learning how to learn.
