On 14 February 2013, TESOL International Association brought together 30 ESL teachers and administrators, education experts, researchers, and thought leaders to start a conversation on how the Common Core State Standards will change the role of those who teach English as a second language. This document summarizes that conversation and provides recommendations for further action.
