Common Core State Standards Overview;

Assessment and Reflection;
English Language Learners; and,
Students with Disabilities.
Reviewed in its entirety, the toolkit provides general background and links to pertinent information about the CCSS, as well as practical assistance and planning. Users can download editable materials and presentations in smaller chunks that may be used in a variety of settings. Video resources have been included for individual use as well as for sharing in larger settings.
Resources found in this toolkit will be updated periodically and as implementation of the Standards progress.
