The resources, housed on Activate Instruction, are part of an open platform where educators can browse, search, rate, add, share, and organize their favorite Common Core-aligned resources, and put them together in personalized playlists for students.
Parents and students can follow sets of resources that educators have prescribed, or they can search for the resource they like best.
