Wrapping your head around Common Core

If you’re trying to figure out what the heck the Common Core standards mean, I recently found a couple things that might help!

First, the writers over at Shmoop have taken the time to break down the Common Core standards into nice, friendly language.

And then if you’re trying to figure out what these standards mean in terms of student outputs, check out the “Performance Level Descriptors” published by PARCC (the folks making our new test!). These should be particularly helpful at the unit level.
