To that end, we regularly talk with colleagues and friends at Student Achievement Partners (SAP), the organization founded by the three of the six lead writers of the Common Core State Standards, and are excited to share that their redesigned site, achievethecore.org, is now live. Of all the wonderful resources they provide, we particularly love:
- A new Toolkit of free resources for evaluating instructional and assessment materials — including textbooks, lessons, units, benchmark and classroom assessments — for alignment to the Common Core State Standards. Developed for educators in joint partnership by Achieve, The Council of Chief State School Officers, and Student Achievement Partners.
- In Common, a collection of hundreds of fully annotated student writing samples aligned to the Common Core, including K-12 samples from all three types of Common Core writing: argument/opinion, informative/ explanatory, and narrative.
- Annotated Mathematics Tasks – A growing collection of finely crafted mathematics tasks, for use in the classroom or in teacher professional development. Each task comes with commentary that explains how the task illustrates the focus, coherence, and rigor of the Standards.
- A new ELA/ Literacy Lesson Bank with nearly 300 lessons for use with popular stories, basal readers, or high school anthologies. Lessons include high quality text-dependent questions for texts you may already have in your classroom library.
