CenterView: Willing But Not Yet Ready: A Glimpse of California Teachers’ Preparedness for the Common Core State Standards
What do California teachers say about being ready to implement the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? And what does the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd recommend that districts, schools, institutions of higher education, and state leaders do to help?
With California on the precipice of implementing the CCSS, teachers are reporting that they are not ready for the transition.
This issue of CenterView, produced by the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd, presents key findings from six focus groups, held throughout California. The focus groups explored:
- Teachers’ familiarity with the CCSS
- Teachers’ beliefs about their own expertise and ability to teach their subject matter under the CCSS
- The changes in practice they think will be necessary to satisfy the new standards.
The CenterView also includes recommendations for districts, schools, institutions of higher education, and state leaders.
