ASCD and Common Core State Standards Resources

 

For decades, the United States maintained various academic quality standards among states, resulting in wide disparities in student proficiency as measured under the No Child Left Behind Act and highlighted by National Assessment of Education Progress scores.

The adoption of the common core state standards by more than 40 states might be the first step toward meaningful and comprehensive comparisons of student performance and achievement among states. Under these new standards, educators across the country will work under the same guidelines for what students need to know and are expected to do.

ASCD is an endorsing partner of the common core initiative. The newer, higher standards will require schools and communities to better and more comprehensively support student learning if students are to meet these enhanced expectations.

For the common core standards to succeed and have maximum effect, they also need to be part of a well-rounded, whole child approach to education that ensures students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

ASCD's EduCore™ Tool

ASCD's free EduCore digital tool, which was funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a repository of evidence-based strategies, videos, and supporting documents that help educators transition to the Common Core standards in mathematics and English language arts and literacy.
To learn more about the common core state standards, check out the resources below.

About the Common Core

“The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”
