Back to School - Part I

What an interesting inservice I attended today. Wait...did I just use those two words in the same sentence? Interesting and inservice? Why yes, yes I did. This is no dig on my district or educators in general, but let's face it, inservices are rarely bundles of fun.

Today we were given some concrete instruction on CCSS ( Common Core State Standards) and how to use them in our classrooms. I must admit, I'm actually pretty eager to use what I learned today, which is mostly due to how much use I see for CCSS skills in students' futures.

Details to come
