2. DISCIPLINE KNOWLEDGE
According to Common Core, students should be able to construct knowledge from text and should not rely on the teacher as the distributor of knowledge. In order to do this, teachers will have plan instruction to scaffold students appropriately, including the use of model texts. In addition, teachers will have to occasionally allow students to struggle with text in order to construct meaning. The goal of CCSS is to build independent thinkers with transferrable knowledge of each discipline. The endgame is to result in students who are college and career ready. Students-centered instruction will be key and may include instructional pedagogies such as project/process-based learning, inquiry, challenge-based learning, and some models of flipped classrooms.
