So, what if your baseball game isn't exactly the Big Leagues? The Common Core challenges us to lift the academic bar to a higher level. Why not simultaneously lift it for school sports as well?
A Glimpse at the new Common-Core aligned standards for sports in schools, democratically developed and soon-to-be tested for 3rd-8th graders:
Want to join Little League?: Basic Common-Core Level of Proficiency in Baseball
How about Pee-Wee Soccer?: Basic Common-Core Level of Proficiency in Soccer
The other Futbol: Basic Level of Proficiency in Flag Football
JV: Basic Level of Proficiency in Basketball
If we don't have standards, then what? No standards? But with them, look how high we can all soar! It's time to raise the bar! Better have another helping of those Wheaties though!
