Math Programs: How They Rate on Common-Core Alignment Based on market share and states’ recommendations, EdReports.org selected 20 math instructional series to review for common-core alignment. (For reporting purposes, K-5 and 6-8 texts from the same publisher were considered separate series.) Small teams of educators scored the digital and print texts on focus, coherence, rigor, and usability. In addition to individual grade-level ratings, EdReports.org gave summative ratings for each grade band (K-2, 3-5, and 6-8). Eureka Math was the only program that met the expectations for alignment to the Common Core State Standards at every grade level reviewed.

Mr. Bruce's History - TLH Sourcing Primary Documents Primary sources/documents are the backbone of our understanding of history, snapshots of the past that have been left behind by those that experienced it. In the same way you leave clues about the world around you with every text, photo, status update, so too have people in our past left the same clues. With so many types of artifacts, we group them into the following categories:Images, framework courtesy of the Thinking Like a Historian Framework by Bobbie Malone and Nikki Mandell through a joint effort by the Wisconsin Historical Society and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Common Core Curriculum Maps Common Core’s ELA Maps have been in use by teachers for over two years. During this time, the non-profit organization has established an unparalleled reputation for creating high-quality, low-cost curriculum tools based on the Common Core State Standards. Our Common Core Curriculum Maps, released in August 2010, were the first new, CCSS-based curriculum tools to come out after the standards were finalized. Written by teachers for teachers, our ELA Maps are detailed guides for creating CCSS-aligned lessons that delve deeply into key core knowledge content and utilize the best and most important literary and informational texts. These carefully crafted maps include all of the new standards. The Maps are comprised of 76 units covering Kindergarten through 12th grade, and include:
