Common Core Standards

The  Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Content Literacy represent a new role for nonfiction literature for children and young adults in the K-12 classroom. The resources below will connect you to the Core Standards Initiative and the two federally-funded, states-based consortium creating new assessments.

We are not affiliated with the Common Core or either consortium. We just want to make sure you have access to what they are doing as it impacts your classroom life.
