Shift underway for students and teachers in District 99
Success depends on hard work, but today, what constitutes “hard work” isn’t as easy to define as it was in the past.
Students no longer need to memorize and recite facts and figures, which now are available instantaneously from any cellphone. Instead, students must change the way they interact with this knowledge and then put it to a higher use – and we as educators must lead the way.
Guiding our work are the new, state-led standards including Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards, which just were finalized on April 9. These standards not only will raise the rigor of academics, but also will help students to become better problem solvers, critical thinkers, thoughtful listeners and public speakers.
