ANet is a nonprofit founded on the premise that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We pursue our vision of educational equality in America by helping schools boost student learning with great teaching that is grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.

Common Core Transition

How can school and district leaders best support teachers through the transition to the Common Core?

For educators, many of the traditional sources of stability and direction—curricula, lesson plans, their own mastery of material—are being shaken by the Common Core. To support schools and districts, ANet offers a guide with case studies: “Focusing on the How: Guidance for School and District Leaders on Supporting Teachers Through the Transition to the Common Core.” The paper was released with a suite of Common Core resources published by the Aspen Institute Education & Society Program.

In the schools and districts where ANet has seen the most effective transitions to the Common Core, leaders are actively focused on helping teachers regain that sense of stability through consistent, collaborative routines for planning from standards, assessing student progress, and adapting instruction based on student needs. "Focusing on the How" shows how these proven routines provide scaffolding for implementing the Common Core.

ANet has helped us a lot. We feel as though we’re ahead of the curve compared to most schools on the Common Core.
