NYLearns.org is a relatively new website dedicated to curriculum management and standards based system. You will find many different resources, including a searchable standards database. This database (located in the “standards” tab) allows you to search any curriculum across all grade levels. You can even select standards by course. Even better than that, it contains symbols that you can click on to connect content standards to Common Core Standards. For example, if you view standards, and select by subject and grade level, there are social studies standards that relate to Common Core. All you need to do is click the Common Core icon, and it brings you to the related standard in ELA or Common Core. This will definitely be a webpage we can use to integrate these standards.
Just a quick post here to include some new Common Core resources from EngageNY.org. Below you will see links to documents that relate to sample NYS assessments with the new Common Core focus. Also, explore the evidence gathering lists for implementing Common Core strategies into lessons in your classrooms. Most of this relates to ELA, but of course we can use these resources in our social studies classrooms as well.
Of course, if you have questions or comments, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
