My sister and I were discussing interviews for this upcoming school year and she was giving me some insight on some of her (and the counties) interview questions that would be asked this year. A lot of these questions revolved around the common core standards and how a prospective teacher would implement them into the classroom. One of the buzzwords she mentioned was formative assessment vs cumulative assessment. I understand the terms and feel like I have a good grasp on what a P or VP would be looking for in these terms/implementation. Are there any other "buzzwords/terms" I should be familiar with? Are there things that I am missing when it comes to these standards vs the current National Science Standards? For what it is worth, I will be/have applying for 7-12 science positions. Thanks for all the advice in advance!
