Common Core State Standards 101

Aug 21, 2013


CommonCore101CoverThe Common Core State Standards (CCSS) represent the first time that nearly every state has set common expectations for what students should know and be able to do. In the past, each state set its own standards, and the results varied widely. And while states collectively developed these common standards, decisions about the curriculum and teaching practices for reaching them are made locally. An unprecedented level of activity is now under way to implement the standards. This activity is uneven, and some states are far ahead of others in their efforts. This report will describe the CCSS initiative and its current status. It will discuss how the initiative came about, briefly describe the changes in instruction the CCSS call for, assess the current state of implementation, describe the views of supporters and critics, and discuss some of the keys to ensuring that the standards deliver on their promise.

    Our children need to be fully prepared for college. Anything that will aid in this process is a necessity. How can I aide in this process as a parent and a person concerned about the future of our youth?
