Most States Providing Common-Core Instructional Materials

Most States Providing Common-Core Instructional Materials | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

Nearly all states are developing curricular and supplemental materials to help districts and schools implement the common-core state standards, but far fewer are approving or certifying lists of materials, according to a new report from a Washington-based research and advocacy group.

 

Four states—Delaware, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Nebraska—said they are requiring that districts use materials aligned to the common standards in English/language arts and mathematics.

 

All 50 states and the District of Columbia have adopted English/language arts and mathematics standards that "reflect the knowledge and skills colleges and employers demand of high school graduates." This includes the 46 states to adopt the common core and the four others that did not: Alaska, Nebraska Texas, and Virginia. (Minnesota adopted the common-core ELA standards, but not the math standards.)
