Deconstructing Common Core Standards to establish common understanding

Most standards are written in terms that can be easily interpreted in a number of ways, which results in significantly different instruction and assessments. To develop a more cohesive understanding of what the standards are asking students to know and be able to do, the Institute has developed this session to demonstrate the process for taking the standards from broad statements to well-defined and understood skills, with the types of thinking required by the standards.
