Common Core State Standards and Common Core 360 – The Goal: Every Child College and Career Ready!
Answering the Common Core Concerns with Common Core 360
The Common Core State Standards have been adopted thus far by 44 states, and another four states are initiative participants—that means that 3.4 million teachers throughout America will be affected by the new Standards. Teachers are largely unfamiliar with what the Standards are, what they mean, what they look like, why they matter, and how to implement them. Educators lack the training they need to accomplish the goals adopted by their state.
Facts on the Common Core State Standards Initiative:
- Created by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), not the federal government
- Approximately 3,391,553 teachers in the 48 states linked to the Standards
- Goal: Common Core assessments administered by the 2014 – 2015 school year
- Common Core 360 answers the questions that 3.4 million teachers are asking about how to make the Standards work in their classroom every day. Common Core 360 gives administrators, teachers, and instructional coaches the necessary resources to turn State Standards into measurable student achievement. The unique training, expert analysis, and real classroom examples of putting the Standards into practice all come from the same minds that designed PD 360, the world’s largest professional development platform. Common Core 360 is directly integrated with PD 360, so educators have a single sign-in solution for the professional development they need to move forward in the 21st century classroom.
