Talking with Parents about the Common Core

At ATOMIM we believe that each and every student deserves the opportunity to be a successful learner.  Teachers and parents can work together for this common purpose. Currently, 85% of teachers say that parents misunderstand the Common Core State Standards. A video  produced by Thomas Fordham Institute, streamed live on July 14, 2016, shows a lesson teaching multiple methods for problem solving using addition and subtraction. It also shows how to encourage students to make choices to use methods to fit specific situations, rather than using multiple methods for the sake of extra work. Finally, several suggestions to communicate with parents, school boards and other stake holders are discussed.
