Common Core State Curriculum
What do the Standards Mean for Parents?
How will the Common Core Standards be implemented in Maryland?
During the 2010-2011 school year, educators statewide worked to create the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Frameworks in English/language arts and mathematics. This 600-page document defines the essential content and skills that students need to know and be able to do in order to meet the Common Core State Standards. The Frameworks are the foundation of Marylandâ€™s new State Curriculum.
Development of the Online Curriculum Toolkit to support the Frameworks is currently underway. The Toolkit will provide teachers with a variety of resources to assist them in designing instructional programs that are aligned with the new curriculum and the new assessments, such as model lessons, model units, formative assessments, multi-media resources, intervention and enrichment modules, and online courses for students and educators.
During the 2011-2012 school year, teams of educators representing all Maryland local school systems participated in the development of model units and lessons in English/language arts and mathematics aligned to the Common Core State Standards. These model units and lessons were presented at [the 2012] Educator Effectiveness Academies in addition to instruction on using the Curriculum Toolkit.
