Required: Read the following 2 journal articles and write a 1-page reflection of the reading. Your reflection should not just be a summary of the reading. Instead, you should incorporate your reaction to the reading by addressing the following questions: (1) Do you agree or disagree and why?, (2) How does this connect to your experiences at your school?, and (3) What did you gain or what impacted you from reading the articles?

 
Optional: Read the following 2 letters provided by NCTM and other organizations pledging support for the Common Core State Standards.
