Recently, 47 of the 50 states have collaborated to form the CCS – Common Core Standards.
They have been released and implemented for English language arts and math. You can download the standards at http:// I encourage you to bookmark this site and visit it often. If you plan on being a classroom teacher, you will need to become familiar with it.
This link will take you to the portion of the website that explains how to read the standards and understand their labels: http://
“Individual CCR anchor standards can be identified by their strand, CCR status, and number (R.CCR.6, for example). Individual grade-specific standards can be identified by their strand, grade, and number (or number and letter, where applicable), so that RI.4.3, for example, stands for Reading, Informational Text, grade 4, standard 3 and W.5.1a stands for Writing, grade 5, standard 1a. Strand designations can be found in brackets alongside the full strand title.”
Here is a first grade ELA standard:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.1.7 Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events.
Here is a second grade ELA standard:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.9 Compare and contrast two or more versions of the same story (e.g., Cinderella stories) by different authors or from different cultures.
