Where are educators searching for Common Core resources?

This Education Week article, Educators in Search of Common-Core Resources by Catherine Gewertz (published online February 24, 2012), is a must read for educators. We want to know where to find instructional resources for the new standards, which cover K-12 English/language arts and mathematics, adopted by all but four states.


Our own Joe Phelan, with the EDSITEment Project, responded quickly to this article with the following comments:


"There are very good free lessons on the web which are designed to meet common core standards. The Thinkfinity program brings together free lessons from some of the top national educational content providers including ReadWriteThink from NCTE and Illuminations from NCTM and aligns them with common core. You should start looking here for what you need: http://www.thinkfinity.org/state-standards-search.


One of the other Thinkfinity partners is EDSITEment from the National Endowment for the Humanities. We have hundreds of lesson in English and History. These lessons, recognized by departments of education across the country, are built around authentic inquiry into primary sources, close reading of complex texts and teaching students how to evaluate and develop evidence based arguments.


I couldn't have said it better, Joe.
