Common Core State Standards
Common Core standards are the backbone of instruction. When designing units, our team brainstorms issues and ideas that are relevant to our students and then connects CCSS to them.
Since we serve 12 - 21 year olds with varying foundational fluency, we pull standards from many different grade levels within out PBL and Skills classes. As a California teacher for 7 years, it is refreshing to see an across state alignment within CCSS.
