New microsite provides free resources and sample lessons to help educators address the most challenging reading and math standards

Core-StandardsA new look into how students handle some of the toughest reading and math Common Core standards could help educators identify where they need to spend more time.

Curriculum Associates recently conducted research using data from more than 750,000 students to identify the reading and math Common Core State Standards (CCSS) that students find the most challenging.

These standards, as well as free instructional resources specifically targeted to them, are now available for educators on Curriculum Associates’ new microsite designed to help educators address difficult areas as they teach to the rigor of the CCSS.
