Implementing Common Core State Standards and Assessments: A Workbook for State and District Leaders. Updated
Harris, Alex; Rodriguez, Nick
Achieve, Inc.
Achieve and the U.S. Education Delivery Institute have developed a practical Common Core Implementation Workbook for all states in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). This workbook uses a proven performance management methodology known as "delivery" to lay out clear action steps for states and districts. It provides relevant information, case stories of good practice, key questions and hands-on exercises for leadership teams to complete together. Regardless of one's timeline, the workbook offers state and district leaders the means to plan for the CCSS and then drive successful implementation. The workbook begins with a diagnostic assessment to help readers determine where their CCSS implementation effort is going well and areas of challenge that merit additional attention. After the diagnostic, the next sections of the workbook focus on how the state agency and school districts can organize for implementation. The workbook then offers a set of implementation actions that consist of the actual work of the CCSS transition. Chapters 5 and 6 help readers answer the critical questions for two key actions: how to align curricular and instructional materials and how to train educators on the CCSS. Chapter 7 addresses the broad transformation many schools will need to make as they become true digital learning environments where technology is integrated into all parts of the school experience, including instruction and assessment. Chapter 8 identifies ways to advance and align college- and career-ready accountability systems with CCSS implementation. Chapter 10 examines ways to strengthen student transitions to higher education in light of the CCSS. The workbook ends with Chapter 11, which answers the final question--how to monitor progress and sustain momentum, a topic that obviously applies across all the implementation actions. Individual sections contain endnotes. [This paper was developed with the U.S. Education Delivery Institute. This paper was written with the assistance of Marie O'Hara and Lauren Kurczewski.
