You are hearing a lot about Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Smarter Balanced Assessments. A Public Policy Institute of California article is the best, concise article on the changes we are implementing throughout the state and locally.

Please look at the sample assessment question in this article and then think about how the assessment (not specifically the standards) requires a change in instruction for students to perform well on the assessment. I am convinced that assisting teachers and support staff in the delivery of instruction requires the greatest emphasis with the implementation on CCSS and the new assessments.
