Common Core “rests on a view of teaching as complex decision making, as opposed to something more routine or drill-based…It requires instructional strategies on teachers’ part that enable students to explore concepts and discuss them with each other, to question and respectfully challenge classmates’ assertions…it is going to require a major reorientation in how many people think about instruction and student learning.” (Danielson interview)*
