What Educators and Administrators Need to Know
Implementation of Common Core State Standards marked a change in instructional practice for educators across the state. Common Core requires teaching to a greater depth on a fewer number of topics in each grade. Specifically, students will be required to master more critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Understanding this transformational shift in public education in Mississippi, teachers and school and district leaders have received comprehensive training on implementation of the standards to develop a deep understanding of what they require. The MDE will continue to provide training and information on resources to assist with the transition to Common Core.
