Core Resources

This page will continually undergo revision as states, non-profits, and for profit organizations continually work to interpret, disseminate, and implement the CCSSI math standards. I hope you find these links useful as you also do the same in your classrooms, districts, etc. I welcome any comments that will help with the organization or broadening of this set of online resources.

These are broader less targeted listing that I am slowly adding to, the bag embedded above has the links that are relevant to implementation.
State Resources:
Ohio Department of Education: "During the summer and fall of 2010, teachers across Ohio worked collaboratively in teams to suggest instructional strategies and resources that align with the revised standards. The State Board of Education adopted the Model Curriculum on March 15, 2011"
Indiana Department of Education: This websites has curriculum maps, model courses with scope and sequences that align with common core standards in all subject ares. I found it enormously helpful as it provides a window into how these standards have come one step closer to implementation.

District Resources
Grand Island Public Schools, Grand Island, Nebraska:  While Grand Island hasn't modified their curriculum maps to address the specifics of the Common Core they do have excellent curriculum maps and organization that I think serve as valuable model.  I am inspired, challenged, and engaged by their approach and it will definitely affect the redesign our curriculum undergoes in light of the common core standards.

Non-Profit Organizations
ASCD:  Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.  The link above directs you to their resource page for common core standards, which includes links to a wide range of topics on curriculum, instruction, standards, and assessment.  A great place to begin digging in around the large topics around implementation of the common core.

AchieveCreated in 1996 by the nation’s governors and corporate leaders, Achieve is an independent, bipartisan, non-profit education reform organization based in Washington, D.C. that helps states raise academic standards and graduation requirements, improve assessments and strengthen accountability.  The link above is Achieve's road map and explication of the process of implentation that addresses many of the macro planning, policy, and college-readiness aspects of the common core.
