Rating

Too often, high standards and a whole child approach are seen as opposite ends of the education spectrum. In this webinar, Molly McCloskey debunks the myth of standards versus support and shares the relationship between the Common Core State Standards and a school improvement approach that ensures each child, in each school, in each community, is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Going beyond the silos of too many school reform efforts, this webinar will explore integration, collaboration, and comprehensive framing rooted in high expectations for student and staff achievement.

The Arts and the Common Core: A Review of Connections Between the CCSS and the National Core Arts Standards Conceptual Framework
Rating

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards (NCCAS) is currently spearheading the revision of the national standards for arts education for the first time since their creation in 1994, and this presents a significant opportunity to highlight the overlap between the Common Core’s objectives and the practices of arts-based learning. Given the central role that the Common Core standards are playing in education and school reform initiatives nationwide, it is a priority of the Coalition to ensure that the goals and objectives of the Core Arts Standards relate clearly, directly, and meaningfully to the Common Core, and that these connections are actively considered as a part of the standards writing process. In an effort to inform the work of the standards writers, College Board researchers undertook a study of the Common Core standards as they relate to arts-based learning.

Progressions Documents for the Common Core Math Standards
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards.
