Post for the week of March 11, 2013

Post for the week of March 11, 2013

Two interesting Web sites for you this week:

First, there is news that the College Board will be rewriting the SAT exam.  This announcement could be important news for secondary students and teachers in the coming months and years.

Second, a few years ago, I heard Tony Wagner speak about College and Career Readiness.  He interviewed business leaders from across the country and wrote about their visions for career readiness.  What he learned contributed to his "Seven Survival Skills."  In light of the Common Core movement and PARCC, these skills help give me a sense of the purpose and motivation for the changes we are making now.
