A Student's Guide to Common Core
Common Core is dramatically changing what standards students can be held to, what curriculum is used in the classroom, and ultimately how students may perform in the real world after they leave the campus. But what are students perspectives of Common Core, and what role do they see themselves playing in its implementation?
Silicon Valley De-Bug asked students what changes, additions, or improvements were needed at their school for Common Core to achieve its goal of educational advancement. Their ideas, opinions, and visions resulted in a first of its' kind publication called "We Have the Power to Raise This Up or Shut It Down."
Score my Core:
During the process of collecting these surveys on Common Core, we visited numerous High Schools in Silicon Valley. We entered the classroom and presented to classes and facilitating discussions on the topic of school and education. During this time, we would pass out the survey to the students. The survey allowed for the Students -- who are normally the receivers of assessment -- give their own assessment of school and how they feel things are being operated. The result was students feeling validated that their opinion was heard, tallied and accumulated. An even further result was the telling observations the students made.
