I recently read in article in the New Yorker by Atul Gawade called "Slow Ideas". Gawade explores why some ideas spread rather quickly, while other seemingly good ideas take more time to teach and implement. As I read this article I couldn't help but relate his story of teaching nurses in India to think critically with the implementation of the CCSS and the impact it will have on both teachers and students. It is an interesting read that I highly recommend in light of the discussions that have been happening in this class and in general regarding the implementation of the CCSS. See attached link.
