Most popular post Favorite comments Andrea Tocci | Jan 12 I loved the Good Teaching Conference. I loved the idea of the Sound Project 2014 with Rick Morris. Mary Patterson's workshop on Common Core comprehension was amazing. I also love the app that was provided to us. Thanks to everyone for making this event happen.

Class sizes increased when we had budget troubles in the last few years. Now that districts seem flush with money, the district offices are in good shape, lots of building is going on, but class sizes are higher than ever! More top tweets @mrmicahali | Jan 11 Perplexed. Differentiate instruction, yet standardize tests. Oxymoronic! Toxic stress on teachers & students! @jadedtatoo13 | Jan 10 California teachers appreciate Gov's commitment to public education and to repaying the billions of dollars cut from our schools. #cabudget @dyannalyoung | Dec 9 YES to public schools where local solutions and student-centered approaches are favored over top-down strategies that don't benefit ALL. Common Core and Beyond CTA offers one-day seminars on implementation of the standards and the new timelines for assessments. Sign up for extensive practice in varied areas of Common Core. 3 Introducing the BOD Want to "meet" your representative on the CTA Board of Directors, and other Board members?
