CC has changed the way that I teach. I look at everything differently now, especially expository stories and informational text. Since our curriculum is very old, I try to incorporate items, particularly ones that come from the real world, into my lessons as much as I can. Items such as, brochures, posters, charts, menus, directions, recipes, etc. I find these informational examples to be more interesting and relevant to our world today and that bringing them in really enhances my students' learning. Has CC changed how you teach? Are you using your old curriculum or has your district purchased new materials? I know that overall, it doesn't matter what curriculum you have, but I find that it does.
