Common Core Info
Whether you're in parent-teacher conferences or just responding to questions from a parent, choose from these quick and helpful resources:
A Common Core FAQ created by teachers, for teachers that includes key information about the background of the Standards, what the changes mean for students and resources where parents can learn more.
Parent Roadmaps from Council of Great City Schools (available in both English and Spanish) provide guidance to parents about what the Standards call for students to be able to do in grades K-8 in math and ELA by the end of each grade level. The roadmaps also offer tips for parents on how to help their children at home and how to talk to their children’s teachers about the Standards.
As always, the Shifts at a Glance help explain the biggest instructional changes in ELA and math.
