The author discusses the use of curriculum customization to reshape the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the de facto national curriculum in the U.S. He argues that educators need to dissect the CCSS into their component parts to set instruction and customize its generic content to meet the needs of all students. School administrators and teachers are encouraged to conduct collaborative reviews of the CCSS and customize the standards around relevant problems projects and scenarios.
