Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 06, 2012
In a study conducted recently by the Center for Education Policy, researchers highlighted a key finding which, while not entirely surprising, sheds clarifying light on the state of the Common Core Standards.
“[Locating] adequate resources to implement the CCSS,” the study reports, “is a major challenge for states in school year 2011-12.” In addition, the report continues “twenty-one states cited resource issues as a major challenge to CCSS implementation.“
As states scramble to find resources to implement the Standards, groups all over the country are busy developing tools to help fill the need. However, not all Common Core resources are created equal.
In its Winter 2012 issue, Scholastic Administrator magazine named the top 6 Common Core sites on the Internet. Ranking among the top of the short list was Common Core 360, an online professional development platform designed by PD producer School Improvement Network that guides educators at every level of Common Core implementation.
“Common Core 360 covers all bases,” says Curtis Linton, vice president of PD developer School Improvement Network. “I can say with absolute confidence that it is the most powerful, complete Common Core resource available. Teachers who are using it are reporting incredible results. It’s helping educators everywhere turn the Standards into increased student achievement.”
“As Scholastic Administrator’s recommendation emphasizes,” Linton continues Common Core 360 is more than just a website. It’s an entire suite of tools that outlines the why and the what of the Common Core State Standards, and shows teachers how to implement them effectively.”
