Read an Excerpt

The standards movement has generated a great deal of discussion, both positive and negative, among educators, legislators, families, and other stakeholders. Some have questioned whether national education standards, including the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), are too rigorous, expecting more of students than is warranted. Some express concern that the standards do not give attention to important domains such as social and emotional development. Others have praised the focus on higher-order thinking, problem solving, and communicating, as well as the higher expectations they believe will serve students well in the future. These higher expectations have resulted in added stress though for many teachers, students, and parents. This book is designed to ease that stress with information, ideas, and suggestions for helping primary students meet standards as part of a curriculum that reflects students’ developmental needs.
