Common Core Resources


Please enjoy the information from this list of Common Core Resources available for teachers from ReadTennessee.org.

From the Tennessee Department of Education: Standards and Assessments.

Achieving the Common Core (from http://achieve.org). Achieve has developed a set of materials to help states and others interested in better understanding the CCSS. The materials focus on the organization, content and evidence base used to support the standards, including fact sheets that describe the content areas and address frequently asked questions about the standards.

Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a 24-state consortium working together to develop next-generation K-12 assessments in English and Mathematics. 

Common Core’s Curriculum Maps in English Language Arts translate the new Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten through 12th grade into unit maps that teachers can use to plan their year, craft their own more detailed curriculum, and create lesson plans. They were written by public school teachers for public school teachers and are available free of charge to anyone who would like to use them. The maps are flexible and adaptable, yet they address every standard in the CCSS. Membership fee currently required.

This Common Core Resources document from the Council of Chief State School Officers contains promising practices and tools to support Common Core State Standards implementation, including a list of 80 free Common Core instructional videos from the Teaching Channel. The document primarily lists resources developed by CCSSO and the lead writers of the standards. 

P21 Common Core Toolkit designed for state and district leaders interested in implementing Common Core standards in ways that strengthen "4Cs" - critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration, communication, and creativity and innovation.

These criterion-based rubrics and review processes to evaluate the quality of lessons and units intended to address the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and ELA/Literacy have been developed by The Tri-State Collaborative, comprised of educational leaders from Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island and facilitated by Achieve. The rubrics are posted on Engageny.org, along with the slides that explain how to use each rubric.

Student Achievement Partners assembled and published many free resources especially useful for implementation of the Common Core Standards. On their site, http://www.achievethecore.org, there also are many articles, sites, and research teachers shouldn’t miss.

Check out our new Common Core resources addressing implications for special populations. In order to meet the learning needs of all students, remember to include any special populations’ teachers in the planning and delivery of instruction.
