As teachers prepare lesson plans and head back to school, much discussion has focused on the growing adoption of the Common Core Standards in classrooms and school districts across the United States.
As quoted from the Common Core Standards website:
“The standards are informed by the highest, most effective models from states across the country and countries around the world, and provide teachers and parents with a common understanding of what students are expected to learn.”
To support educators in aligning their lesson plans to the national standards, Adobe Youth Voices has created a Common Core toolkit, which includes recommendations of best practices for effectively integrating Essentials curriculum with the Common Core Standards.
If you haven’t already signed up for Essentials, come join the community today, and see how our curriculum and toolkit can support your classroom with robust inquiry, effective collaboration, and authentic assessment.
