Teachers in North Carolina are being urged to be more creative with the lessons they teach about science and technology.
The Common Core State Standards have become an important tool for teachers, especially when it comes to STEM topics.
They have been used by more than 3,500 public and private schools in the state, including the state’s largest.
But teachers in North Carolinas are not used to having such a large number of science and math topics in one set of books, according to a survey by the Raleigh, N.C.-based Education Trust.
Many teachers are hesitant to teach students about topics like astronomy and biology in such a short period of time, the survey found.
“They’re very cautious about using it because they don’t want to alienate students,” said Carol A. St. John, the executive director of the education trust.
The survey, which surveyed nearly 700 teachers in all 50 states, found that teachers were reluctant to discuss the topics in their classrooms because they were unfamiliar with the Common Core.
The lack of familiarity among teachers led some to wonder if the curriculum was too difficult for students.
The Common Exams, which are the same standards used in most states, have been the subject of several controversies in recent years, including concerns about whether the curriculum is too hard for students with limited math skills.
In December, the U.S. Department of Education asked teachers in more than 300 states to provide the Common Examinations for every class of students.
The Education Trust survey found that most teachers said they did not feel they had enough information to provide their students with enough information about the topics.
The organization is calling on North Carolina teachers to start using the Common Standards as the foundation for their classrooms.
North Carolina teachers are being encouraged to be creative with how they teach science and tech.
Students can find a topic they are interested in by simply looking it up online or on YouTube.
Teachers also need to be able to identify which topics are particularly important to their students, such as math or science.
The curriculum is designed to encourage students to learn about all subjects from the basics to the highest levels of science.
It also includes a lot of technology, such the internet, social media and apps.
The trust said its surveys show teachers in many states are hesitant about teaching students about the topic of science in the same way they were taught in the 1960s.
“It seems like the Common standards are not being used as much as they should be,” St. Johns said.
Instead, teachers should focus on teaching science and the technology they use, she said.
The report, titled “How to Teach Kids About Science and Technology: A Challenge for Schools in North and South Carolina,” was released Monday and will be available in the coming weeks.
