Activities, Ideas, and Resources for using the Common Core Standards
Do I need to switch to CCSS?
If your state has adopted the Common Core State Standards, let your school administrator and other teachers be your guide. Many of the standards, particularly the Anchor Standards in ELA and the Math Domains, are very broad and general. This should make the switch from previous standards quite easy. On the other hand, if you are a teacher who is comfortable in covering a set number of content standards within a given week, this new system may be quite a challenge.
