CCSS: Ed week looks at DC's schools

This week they describe how schools in Washington D.C. are trying to ramp up instruction to meet the "new" standards.  There are new units with "anchor texts, along with dozens of articles, novels, plays, poems, essays, and other works as suggested readings."

Yet, there is so much more than curriculum in learning.  Kids want to know you care about them and their learning.  No matter what happens in our edu-political capital, there are teachers there (and everywhere) who greet their students each morning warmly and who do their very best to make each day and each class important and valuable.   That's encouraging.
