Common Core Curriculum
Common Core is a set of standards defining the knowledge and skills that students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade need to master each year to be prepared for the next grade, and ultimately college or work.
Brief History of Common Core
Creating common academic standards across the country was a state-led initiative, involving a coalition of governors and educators. The actual standards were developed by teachers, administrators, experts, and parents.
Purpose of Common Core
The Common Core State Standards are meant to provide teachers and parents with a shared understanding of what students are expected to learn. All Mosdos Press textbooks are aligned with Common Core knowledge and skill standards.
