Critical thinking and teamwork
I’ll be honest with you: the older my children get, the more I’m worried about their academics. And it’s not that I think they won’t be able to cross their t’s and dot their i’s or ace that all important biology test.
Instead, I’m worried that I might not be able to keep up with their homework and help explain some critical problems that I probably wouldn’t understand myself.
And I blame Common Core Standards.
But it looks like we need to stop moaning about our kids’ homework because Common Core might actually be working for students… cue mind blown!
There’s a new report that says students are making gains on new Common Core tests.
