Like everything in life, communication is always key. We realize that with the shifts and changes taking place to our education standards in this country, there is a lot of material that administrators and educators will need to sift through in order to inform and communicate these new standards properly. Since its inception, CTB/McGraw-Hill has been working closely with members at state and national levels to develop curriculum, instructional resources and assessments aligned to the Common Core.
In an effort to help keep the lines of communication open and clear for everyone affected by these standards, we created a set of free resources to help explain what everybody needs to know about the Common Core. We suggest using these tools at meetings and presentations, to kick off teamwork sessions, and to enlist support throughout your educational system.
