What if you could change teaching and learning by taking one word or phrase and changing it?

In Hacking the Common Core,¬†author/expert Mike Fisher reimagines teaching the Common Core, with his one-letter hack. Fisher replaces the “r” in “rigor”, to completely change the climate of today’s classrooms, even in a standardized world.

Fisher makes one wonder¬†if it’s possible to change other areas of teaching and learning by shifting the language in other trendy education words. He suggests that major change is possible if teachers work together to come up with other one-letter or one-word hacks.
