Kniffin, I know how easy it is to get discouraged when students are not succeeding, especially when they don't have adequate support in general education classes. Are the teachers of those science/social studies classes receptive to your input? Could you attempt to modify homework for them so that it is do-able? Some general ed teachers don't realize the deficits of the kids, or don't know how to make appropriate accommodations. If they are open to talking, maybe just starting a dialogue about the students and your concerns could help? Let me know, Lisa.
Hi Lisa, I think we have to be patient with the Common Core. Until some more reliable data is created from the testing, we don't really know what we are up against as educators. All I can say, is that the demands of the CCSS are challenging my teaching in a positive way. My other team members and I are embracing new ideas full force and are seeing good results from the day to day work we do at school. As for the rest, time will tell. Thank you for such an interesting comment!! - Lisa.
