Stories of Success
Stories of Success is a unique collection of short video interviews highlighting the positive experiences of teachers implementing the Common Core State Standards. Six teachers offer you a glimpse into their classrooms. These teachers have diverse backgrounds, and teach different grades and different subjects, but they are united in the excitement they feel watching their students rise to meet higher expectations. Watch these teachers share stories about topics such as:
- How their teaching has changed since implementing the Standards
- How they’ve won over both parents and students wary of the changes
- How they’ve been able to use creative lessons to energize their classrooms
