The Common Core State Standards are a starting point for transforming the way we practice the art of teaching and for building stronger conversations among teachers, grade levels/departments, schools, districts, and states. There will be a consistent expectation throughout the country of what our students will need to know and be able to do at each grade level and course of study. The Common Core State Standards are a set of core understandings we want our students to have in order to be prepared for college and their careers ahead.
