The Common Core Standards: What’s the difference?

Overview: Phil Daro, a member of the writing team for the mathematics Core Standards, and the California Core Standards Special Commission.

48 states have signed on to adopt the Common Core Standards for mathematics and English language arts. So what? How will common standards change anything for teachers and students? Our speaker, a nationally renowned policy expert on mathematics education issues, will highlight some of the key points of difference in the substance of the standards, explain why they are the way they are, and discuss how the standards can make a difference for teachers and students.

Anyone interested in our state’s new standards is welcome to attend and will be admitted free of charge as guests of the Lawrence Hall of Science.

When: Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00
