The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.
Thank you! I follow Kelly Clark on my blog now so I can show this to my students this fall...I also saved her link in my online course and hope to present it in some way...
