Seeing Cores

Views. Perspectives. Students. Teachers. Lessons. Classroom space, digital space, spaces to explore.  The purpose of Seeing Cores is to provide practical, reflective resources for the 6-12 teacher.  These practices are attempts from and in a current classroom.  Seeing Cores is a space that seeks vibrant, challenging and engaging ways of bringing the Common Core into the classroom.
