New Arizona Education Standards Emphasize Creativity Over Memorization
Last fall, the Arizona Board of Education voted to make major changes to the teaching standards that guide our state educators in subjects like history, social studies and science.
Now, many teachers are excited to begin implementing those standards in the classroom. According to Renee Howell, it will allow for less memorization and more creativity in her classroom.
Howell is an AP 11th-grade history teacher at Dr. Castell High School in the Chandler Unified School District. She joined The Show to talk about the upcoming changes.
