21 Dec Five Ways Common Core Benefits Students
The Common Core curriculum creates a framework for students to master sufficient in-depth knowledge in math and English in each grade level. This should help all students acquire the necessary math and ELA skills required to succeed in life and in higher education. Here are six ways common core benefits students:
1. New Standards of Curriculum and Methodology: The Common Core Math Program is designed to help students think logically and analytically with concrete understanding before arriving at solutions. This should promote in-depth understanding of math rather than simple memorization.
2. The Common Core stresses the depth of the concepts rather than lengthy syllabi that touch the concepts superficially. Quality of learning is more important than the quantity of material so students learn all the key concepts deeply through various learning methods.
3. The students taught the Common Core Curriculum learn the concepts in an encouraging atmosphere. The concepts are taught under ‘learning by doing’ methods wherein students involve themselves, experiment and explore the concepts.
4. Common Core Curriculum can help improve engagement in the classroom. It has replaced the old methods where students learn through repetition and memorization. The curriculum is designed to give students mastery of the skills needed to move on to the next grade level.
5. The Common Core Curriculum is quite collaborative. The curriculum can be altered or refined as per the needs of the students or teachers.
