Caught in the Middle: Common Core in the Middle School

Much of the debate surrounding the Common Core State Standards has focused on the impact these standards will have on the high school and college classroom. However, as the standards seek to define college and career readiness in high school curriculum, we will see significant pressure in the middle school classroom to level up.

In this session we discuss how the Common Core impacts middle school curriculum and assessment.
