Next Steps: Putting the Common Core into Practice

Students will be expected to take Common Core assessments in another year, making this academic year a critical time for schools to prepare. Many schools have started to map their local curriculum to the Common Core State Standards, and K-12 leaders have begun training teachers and revising their instructional plans to ensure these new standards will be integrated into teaching and learning across all curriculum areas—not just in English and math.

With the generous support of Measured Progress, we’ve assembled this collection of stories and other resources to help you plan critical next steps as you put the Common Core standards into practice in your schools.
