Question at my last interview: What do you think of standards based education/curriculum?? I can't honestly recall what my response was, I wasn't expecting the question, so it kinda threw me a bit.
How would you answer this?

I would talk about how great it is because that is where education is headed.

standard curriculum is being adopted by many schools so its important to know how that school specifically views them. i usually say that they are a necessary evil. that they allow for a structured curriculum and allow for assessment to take place almost all the time, however, they do not take into consideration the "teachable" moments that may arise, however, thats when you explain how you will know the standards and can gear any teachable moment to those standards.

Well, I'm a newbie, looking for my first job, so this may seem silly, but is standard based instruction/curriculum basically referring to the Common Core? Thanks for all your input!

I think so but not sure....I hope to hear an answer soon. I'm not sure why they would refer to it as that and not common core standards. Right now, 47 states have adopted CCS.

I was asked a very similar question today!

Prepare yourself before the interview and look at the District's Website. If the District has adopted the curriculum then there should be info on the website.

I live in Texas and my district adopted C-Scope. Since I am not a teacher, I can't access the curriculum but I am able to access it through the "parent portal."

I did not talk about the positives or negatives about using the curriculum. Instead, I talked about my knowledge of building lesson plans using the C-Scope curriculum.

In Texas we call the common core standards TEKS. Our C-Scope is based on the TEKS.

Common Core is replacing the State Standards, i.e. standards-based curriculum, we all have had up until now.
