Today's teachers face a tremendous and competing challenge: obtain excellent and continually higher results on tests that generally only verify rote knowledge, while simultaneously teaching critical thinking, cooperation, and communication skills. The new Common Core State Standards combined with the National Council for Social Studies College, Career, and Civic Life Framework, demand teachers attend to higher order thinking skills, while often local and state exams measure only basic literacy, knowledge, and comprehension.
