Common Core Works

From the Page to the Classroom

Purpose of this Website

 
The Council of the Great City Schools has designed this Common Core Works website to provide member districts quick access to reliable information, tools, and resources for implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics, and the Next Generation Science Standards. For example, you will find English Language Arts/Literacy videos or Mathematics videos that can be used for professional development as well as Parent Roadmaps that will help you communicate grade-level standards to parents and the community.
 
Use this site to find updates on current Common Core initiatives, projects, conferences, and opportunities to network across districts to support quality instruction and raise student achievement!
