Teaching and Learning in the Era of the Common Core: The Students at the Center Series eBook

Nancy Hoffman, Adria Steinberg, Rebecca E. Wolfe, editors

Students at the Center explores the role that student-centered approaches can play to deepen learning and prepare young people to meet the demands and engage the opportunities of the 21st century. The papers that build the knowledge base for the project renew attention to the importance of engaging each student in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed for success in college and a career. Student-centered approaches to learning, while recognizing that learning is a social activity, pay particular attention to the importance of customizing education to respond to each student’s needs and interests, making use of new tools for doing so.
