What are Common Core State Standards and why do I need this book?

Here are two articles that will help you to understand the education standard now adopted by 46 states:

What is this book?

The Key to Aligning Your K-5 Class with Common Core State Standards  is for classroom teachers, technology integration specialists and lab professionals, as a resource for aligning your technology program with the Common Core State Standards now implemented in forty-six states. You will find it a foundational tool for scaffolding technology into the areas of math, language, reading, writing, speaking and listening as is required in CCSS. Overall, they are authentic approaches to student-centered learning, asking the student to be a risk-taker in his/her educational goals and the teacher to act as guide. The essential questions are open-ended and conversations organic and inquiry-driven, ultimately asking students to take responsibility for the process of their own learning.

It can be used as a resource book, to provide exciting new lessons that seamlessly blend technology with lesson plans and involve students in the many new tools available to enrich their educational experiences, or a road map, plotting the vertical planning and differentiated instruction fundamental to CCSS goals.

  • The Common Core State Standard alignment
  • The Essential Question—the Big Idea
  • An Overview
  • Objectives and Steps
