Common Core Implementation Guidelines for Leaders: The Good & the Bad--Wesley Fryer What we need in Oklahoma schools more than anything is NOT more tests or new tests aligned to new standards: We need fantastic, high-quality teachers and school administrators.
This book by Doug Reeves and his team gives good background knowledge on how to implement the Common Core Standards! It is worth reading and spending $10 bucks on. (But, you probably don't need your own personal copy, if you can get it from the library I would do that instead! :)).
