Common Core Teacher Planning & Preparation Tools

How do you get ready for the Common Core? Simplify the process!

Whether you've already started, or are at the beginning of your journey, the transition to the new Standards may seem overwhelming and complicated. Don’t let the complexity be a barrier to your success. Think about the transition as three core steps:

Common core, Vertical progression guide, vocabulary reference, unit organizer

Teachers, teacher teams, librarians and media specialists, and instructional leaders, including principals and curriculum directors are using these resources to plan instruction, develop student plans and goals, and monitor student learning—all which lead to successfully implementing the Standards and increasing student outcomes.
