If you are visiting this post, you have attended my brief lesson, “Teaching Students to L.O.V.E. Literacy Despite Common Core and Standardized Testing” that covers the purposes of ESSA, and how it relates to meeting the needs of all learners despite the challenges that educators face.
Objectives of the Lesson
- Students will learn the goals and purpose of the ESSA.
- Students will learn the challenges that educators face within the components of the ESSA.
- Students will explore the creative manners in which educators can respond to and approach standardized assessment requirements due to educational reforms.
