I hear your cries. I feel your pain. We are hearing so much about how to implement Common Core Sate Standards. Information comes down the pipe in trickles and then floods. We know there are always implementation dips when the next new "thing" comes our way. But our number one goal is to teach our students what they need to know to become life long learners. Step back...look at the standards... remember that CCSS standards are year end goals and teach your heart out.
For this too shall pass.
Please note that there is no hashtag in the title of this post. Hope you are laughing now.
