For this session we’ll be discussing an article from Michael Fullan related to the Common Core Standards:
Fullan, M. (2011). Choosing the wrong drivers for whole system reform. Centre for Strategic Education Seminar Series Paper No. 204. Melbourne: Centre for Strategic Education. (see below for free online PDF link)
Please be prepared to discuss the following questions:
1. Any “aha’s” as a result of reading this seminar paper?
2. What do Fullan’s ideas mean for how the SPDGs might provide professional development related to the common core?
