The Common Core and Lifelong Learning: Are We Pouring Concrete or Building Capacity?

The learning objectives within the Common Core State Standards represent a rigorous application of research, media and higher-order thinking skills, as students develop their capacity to engage in complex text and tasks that have real-world implications.

Essential to this effort are the lifelong learning skills, habits and dispositions that serve as the foundational structure for all learners. Without thoughtful and purposeful attention to these and other requisites we risk our investments of time, money and energy yielding little return – like pouring concrete without proper supports in place.

Join us for a rich discussion focused on the core tools our leaners need to build capacity and develop competencies in discovering meaning, analyzing content, comparing information, synthesizing, applying and sharing their understandings.
Participants will:
- Identify the requisite skills, dispositions and learning habits that support the Common Core
- Consider resources designed to foster student development of foundational tools and structures for learning
- Share critical shifts in the roles of teachers and students in a standards-based learning environment
- Explore how learners are being empowered to extend their thinking, research and learning beyond current boundaries
