  • The CCSS is driving changes in all of the content areas.  Here is an article on how some of those changes are being made at the high school level.
    Part of a push in Montgomery County, Md., to prepare students for life after high school includes the adoption of project-based instruction at Wheaton High School. Superintendent Joshua P. Starr says the program could expand to other high schools if it proves successful. The initiative -- which includes a redefined role for the classroom teacher as a project leader or facilitator -- is being used in math, science and engineering classes, but it will include English, reading and social studies when the school's new building opens.
