Common Core vs SOL

Mathematics Education graduate students Katie Victor and Jen Long's collaborative capstone project compared Maryland's Common Core Standards with Virginia's Standards of Learning. Their goal: to determine if an algebra student from one state could transfer relatively seamlessly between the state's public school systems. The two found that, with small exceptions, the states had very comparable curricula. In analyzing videos of themselves teaching the same lesson -- one in Maryland and the other in Virginia -- they even found that their instructional styles and deliveries were similar! Both alums currently teach Algebra -- Katie at Blue Ridge Middle School in Loudoun County, Virginia, and Jen at Smithsburg Middle School in Washington County, Maryland.
