1 A New Era Begins Common Core: The Future Begins Now

2 Why Common Core

3 Common Core in 3 minutes

4 What are the Common Core State Standards? ➢ They are K-12 standards in English Language Arts and Math designed to prepare students to be prepared for two to four year colleges or the workplace. ➢ The standards are written for all stakeholders, as they are clear to exactly what the expectations are for each standard in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and math. ➢ There will now be greater consistency in the expectations of specific similar standards from state to state, unlike in previous years. ➢ There is an equity piece to the Common Core Standards in that no matter the level of socio-economic status or the area students reside in, they will all have equal access to these standards.
