This innovative book is designed to help educators develop a better understanding of the Common Core through the processes of teacher and student enquiry. It is grounded in the premise that teacher inquiry is a logical mechanism with which teachers and administrators can gain insights into the standards, what they mean for teachers and students, and how the Common Core can be actualized within the reality of teachers' everyday work with students in the classroom. At the same time it advocates that teachers engage students in the process of inquiry in the classroom as a central means of helping them meet the new standards.
