Common Core Curriculum Maps available
| Aug 24, 2010
As 35 states have signed on to adopt the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) released in June, the need for curriculum guides to assist teachers in helping students meet these standards has become imperative. That need has been met by the Common Core Curriculum Mapping Project. Common Core has released for public comment free English Language Arts (ELA) Curriculum Maps written by public school teachers and designed for grades K-12. Public comment will be accepted through September 17 at www.commoncore.org/maps.
A project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the research-based Curriculum Maps present a sequence of thematic curriculum units connecting the skills outlined in the CCSS with suggested student objectives, texts, activities, and much more. More information about the Curriculum Maps is available at commoncore.org/maps/index.php/faqs
