  3. 3. • The Core Standards main focus is on career and college readiness. • Assessment is a huge focus for teachers as they become more mindful of what they are teaching and how they deliver their lessons.
  4. 4. • Another huge focus is that the Standards addresses both the core academic knowledge and complex and higher order thinking skills that reflect 21st Century themes.
  5. 5. Technology and the use of iPads in particular in the classroom is a massive leap into the 21st Century as they are so revolutionary in the way they can be utilized both by the teacher and student.
