Why Aren’t We Listening to Modern Educational Thinkers?
My Prezi shows how Common Core Standards and standardized testing education is viewed in comparison to modern education reform. One major difference is the curriculum and style of assessment. While Common Core Standards do not require standardized testing, the education in the USA with Common Core Standards, typically uses standardized testing to assess. With educational reform, the focus is not on the content, but the processes, which is what Common Core Standards states is what is important. Educational reform also looks at the individual, while Common Core requires all students to be taught and assessed all standards no matter their interests.
