With such widespread debate on the benefits of the Common Core State Standards, created a guide to provide an overview of what they can look like in the classroom. We did this because teaching is stressful enough on its own, so everyone should feel confident when implementing new methods in the classroom. created A Guide to Common Core Standards in the Classroom to provide future educators with the information they need the most, such as:

  • Understanding the Common Core State Standards

  • Exploring Common Core subject standards

  • Implementing the Common Core curriculum in the classroom

On this subject, our Effective Teaching Techniques for the Classroom guide is another resource we have that might also be beneficial
