Next Generation Learning Standards

  •  

    Good-bye Common Core: welcome "Next Generation Learning Standards." These revamped learning standards--devised by teachers, administrators, and parents--resesigned Common Core by merging some standards, moving other standards that were not age appropriate to different grade levels, and by just throwing some standards right out the window. The outcome is a healthier balance--yay! That means more FUN with our reading and writing selections. Creativity is BACK!
