The Council of the Great City Schools has developed content and grade-specific parent roadmaps that provide detailed information for parents about the expectations of the Common Core in English Language Arts and Literacy.
These roadmaps include:
1) Examples of grade-level focus in the content area using parent-friendly language
2) Sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core
3) Tips for parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home
Grades K-8 Parent Roadmaps for English Language Arts and Literacy have been posted and Spanish-language versions are available in grades K-5. More translations will follow throughout the school year, and high school-level guides will be posted later this fall.
