Teaching to the Core: Integrating Implementation of Common Core and Teacher Effectiveness Policies


"To strengthen state implementation of Common Core State Standards and meaningful teacher evaluations, the Aspen Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) in this policy brief suggest ten actions to move beyond simply alignment of two ambitious reforms-- teacher evaluation and the Common Core-- to integrate them into a system-level whole. To do that, author and Aspen Education Program Executive Director Ross Wiener describes the linkages between implementation of Common Core and teacher effectiveness policies and offers practical suggestions to state leaders on how to ensure teachers are using strategies that engage students in learning at high levels."
