Coping with Common Core
6. Don't have teachers staple their standards into their lesson plan books. Instead, have them staple them into their brains. These grade level standards are brief and well organized enough that teachers can carry these around in their heads instead of in their book bags--meaning that they can take advantage of teachable moments that may arise.
Each of these coping mechanisms made sense before, but they don't fit our new partner and ought to be dropped from our repertoires.
Oh, and don't go to sleep angry.
