The Common Core: Are State Implementation Plans Enough?
Best, Jane; Cohen, Courtney
Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL)
This policy brief outlines the Common Core implementation plans for 15 states, including the professional development and resources/tools--such as instructional materials, toolkits, frameworks, crosswalks, and curriculum guides--that each state is providing. The authors suggest that supplemental resources like McREL's Common Core "quick-start" guidebooks can help teachers at all levels in developing lesson plans and classroom activities that support the standards and learning objectives, including aspects most likely to be new to them.
Descriptors: State Standards, Academic Standards, Educational Objectives, Instructional Materials, Curriculum Design, Lesson Plans, Program Implementation, Student Evaluation
