One teacher's attempt to connect with other educators across Massachusetts and beyond and provide relevant, up-to-date, and sometime helpful information on next generation assessments, common core state standards implementation, and college and career ready initiatives
Massachusetts is in the second year of their PARCC transition plan and has created three communication materials that can serve as good starts to conversations, basic information for teachers and families, or as a way to frame what is happening in the Commonwealth around PARCC and the 2011 Curriculum Frameworks in ELA and Mathematics.
Last night, September 14, 2014, @dmiller212001 hosted a wonderful online conversation about PARCC for all interested educators on Twitter as part of his weekly conversation using the hashtag #edchatRI. The conversation lasted a little over an hour, and the dialogue holds the voices of educators from across the spectrum on what a transition like this means for students, families, and teachers.
