What does Common Core implementation look like? Ask a teacher

PBS NewsHour
The PBS NewsHour is in a unique position to see how Common Core implementation is going in classrooms across the country with the help of young journalists in our Student Reporting Labs. We asked our student reporters to interview their teachers about how Common Core is affecting what they teach and how they teach it. Regina Lauricella, a third grade teacher at Philip’s Academy Charter School in Newark, New Jersey, said Common Core has changed the order she teaches topics in math. Jeremy Carroll is the Curriculum Leader at Las Vegas, Nevada’s Desert Pines High School, and has no doubt that more rigorous standards will benefit students.
