Jay McTighe on the promises and challenges of Common Core State Standards

An insightful look at the process of adopting and truly understanding the CCSS.

"The standards are not the curriculum, they are the building code. They reflect important, desirable outcomes and we must meet them, but we don't cover them check-by-check ... we want to create an interesting, rich curriculum where teachers and students want to live," says Jay McTighe. Visit the ASCD website to watch his video interview with Educational Leadership's Marge Scherer, during which he delves into why the standards "just make sense" and discusses key challenges.
