CDE Publications Available to Help Implement Common Core State Standards

The California Department of Education ("CDE") has two publications available to help schools and students with the transition to the Common Core State Standards ("CCSS").  This week the CDE announced that these publications are now available in print form, in addition to the previously available electronic formats.

The publications are:
California Common Core State Standards: English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy)
California Common Core Standards: Mathematics (CA CCSSM)

Additionally, Tom Torlakson released a video explaining the importance of the transition to assessments based on the new CCSS.

The CCSS are a set of standards for English and math that are consistent across the 45 states that have adopted them since 2010.  More information on California's implementation of the CCSS can be round on the CDE's website, here.

For more information, please see the CDE's August 26, 2013 News Release available here.
