The ABSOLUTE BEST COMMON CORE RESOURCE EVER!
Have you been rolling your pants up to wade through the language of the common core standards? Oh, look, I think I just saw an octopus swim by! Well, I have! I have been working with the other math coaches in my district to build a guide for many days (both this year and last) to help decipher the common core standards into a teaching guide. After all of that hard work, I have happened across the most amazing resource to help teachers understand the standards. North Carolina has taken each and every language and math standard and broken them down into much more friendly language for teachers. In North Carolina’s own words, they have answered the questions: “What does this standard mean that a student must know and be able to do?” These standards are complete with examples, too! They have unpacked the standards for us! I don’t know about you, but I am really starting to be fond of North Carolina. Take a look at the example below. If you click on it, they you will be directed to the North Carolina website.
