Common Core State Standards Initiative PA Core Standards CCSSO (Our Responsibility, Our Promise: Transforming Educator Preparation and Entry into the Profession, 2012): In 2011, many states were still in the early stages of implementing college- and career-ready student standards. These standards reflect a growing consensus about what students should know and be able to do in a dynamic world where our students are persistently compared to and compete against students across the United States, and from other countries that have their own common standards and high levels of student achievement. As states progressed with their implementation, a growing concern arose among principals that they were not prepared to support teachers in achieving higher levels of effective practice. And there was also concern by teachers that they were not prepared for teaching to the rigor of higher standards and did not possess the strategies and approaches necessary for successful implementation of college- and career-ready standards. Implications for Higher Education CCSSO (Our Responsibility, Our Promise: Transforming Educator Preparation and Entry into the Profession, 2012): A learner-ready teacher is one who is ready on day one of his or her career to model and develop in students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed today including: the ability to think critically and creatively, to apply content to solving real world problems, to be literate across the curriculum, to collaborate and work in teams, and to take ownership of their own continuous learning. Implications for Higher Education What can teacher preparation programs do to support the expectations of college and career readiness? Question for Higher Education
