How can we successfully implement the common core learning standards in math successfully?
I agree that times are changing and role of the teacher needs to change with the times as well. All students learn at different paces and abilities. As an educator we must be able to provide instruction in multiple facets to accommodate our most struggling students and those who learn significantly different than surrounding classmates. As we implement common core learning standards we are teaching our students not one method to solve math problems. We are providing our students a variety of strategies and techniques to solve and it is up to the individual student to utilize what works best of problem at hand. I see great growth in our young students in allowing to provide solutions in not solely on specific method.

Your post comments are insightful. Students grow and learn at different paces and abilities. It is our role as an educator to not only recognize and differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all our students. I truly believe that a student's motivation is a crucial component to their learning. Whether a student's cultural, socio-economic status and/or parental involvement is an effective attribute it solely relies on the efforts of the individual student. Today more than ever teachers are changing ways of instruction. To become highly effective educators will need to become masters of curriculum. This effectiveness will coincide to learning in depth core knowledge which is influenced by common core learning standards. The role of district administration to support education must be significant and for the right reasons. In order for teachers to succeed, administration must be providing ongoing training and time for collaboration not only for individual grade levels but across grades as well. Scaffolding instruction has great potential and we need to be able to collaborate to understand fully where our students have been and where they are going across grade levels. ***** Most critical of all, instruction: Teachers should be able to individualize teaching by giving them the necessary support and tools such as well-trained teaching assistants, well-designed curriculum, and other learning materials that will allow them to differentiate teaching and learning.******
