Dear Mr. Gates,
I’ve never been much of a poet but a recent Twitter campaign inspired this. See what happens when teachers collaborate and think outside the box? We are our own think tank, free of charge!
I’m a mom and a teacher, and I’m #againstcommoncore.
I am a social justice ESL teacher and lover of great literature, and I am #againstcommoncore.
I am a history buff (MA in Latin Amer studies), former NYC Teaching Fellow (Cohort 12) & Spanish-speaker, and I’m #againstcommoncore.
I am a critical thinker and deep digger, and I’m #againstcommoncore.
I want my daughter to be inspired and motivated at school, not test-prepped to death. I am #againstcommoncore.
I have a brain and I create my own lessons. I am #againstcommoncore.
I am #againstcommoncore b/c I want 2 teach for another 20 years. In this current climate, I won’t last that long. Guess that’s their plan.
I don’t want to be bullied into using only DOE-approved curriculum & I can’t keep all the acronyms straight. #againstcommoncore.
