This post was written by: Idaho Core Admin

Since the implementation of Idaho Core Standards in the classroom over the last few years, several questions have been raised about how the standards will change education – some of which include why the standards teach some methods that many parents haven’t heard of, what students will be learning, and more.

This video clarifies what the standards look like in the classroom. As this third grade teacher poses a real-life question to students, the students choose to solve the problem using whichever model works best for them. These new standards teach students critical thinking skills and new ways to problem solve.

See how fourth graders apply Idaho Core Standards in the next video.
