Priscilla Boerger and Kelly Burlison, assistant professors in the Ross College of Education, attended the Common Core State Standard Initiative workshop Feb. 5 & 6 in Orlando, Fla. The Common Core State Standards are set national standards that classroom teachers in 46 states, including Florida, are slowly implementing into the classrooms. Boerger and Burlison were able to bring back critical information on how these standards will be used and will now be able to use this information to enhance the learning of and better prepare the College of Education students to use these standards in the future.
