By: Ross Brewer, Ph.D., Exemplars President

Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins have written a “must read” paper – “From Common Core Standards to Curriculum: Five Big Ideas,” in which they offer key ideas to guide the work of transforming the Common Core Standards to a functioning curriculum in a school or district. The paper highlights some of the important misconceptions that readers bring to the Common Core and focuses on important processes that will lead schools and districts to creating an effective curriculum that actually embraces the Common Core Standards.
