Has your state adopted them? If so, do you think implementing them is drastically changing (or will drastically change) what you have done in your classroom in the past?

We are adopting them. I don't know that we will be changing a lot necessarily in certain areas. I'm curious to see what the social studies/science ones will be like. I think we are going to be changing stuff in those areas for sure.

My district has adopted Common Core and it is changing up social studies drastically. I taught 6th grade Ancient World History last year and if the new changes are implemented this year I will be teaching 6th grade Geography of the Western Hemisphere. It is an enormous change. I'm excited about it though.

For high school Language Arts, what it means is that all kids are basically treated like AP kids. Not too excited about that b/c I viewed English Honors as a bit of a break from teaching AP. But there's nothing wrong with wanting higher standards. There's something wrong, however, when it is expected to be done all of a sudden to kids who had no prior preparation. An incoming 9th grader may lack the critical thinking skills they are requiring simply because the FCAT, itself, doesn't require any. I have a hard enough time deprogramming 11th graders from the 10th grade FCAT.

We are adopting them. In fact my kids last year were the first group that would be tested on them in 3rd grade. Not many major changes for first grade. We don't really teach science and social studies. It is a part of our language arts but not for a grade. When looking at the objectives they are just more specific. I am planning on posting "I can" statements and I am looking for a checklist so that I can make sure that I have covered each objective. I know if I stick to the basal and math program that there will be holes.

If you find a site with checklists for the grade levels, I would LOVE to see it.

I think we'll have some holes too with our math program. We don't use a basal, so we'll have to create some lessons I'm sure to make sure we're covering all of the standards.

Virginia hasn't adopted them. It's really frustrating too b/c almost all materials follow the common core - so half of the stuff we have doesn't fit our standards!

Is VA planning to adopt them at some point?

Florida has adopted CC. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a trainer for our school. I think it will bring alot of changes, hopefully for the good. Seems like they are putting a little power back into the teacher's hands and yet tightening the reigns at the same time.
