Common Core Learning Standards

Common Core Learning Standards are internationally-benchmarked and evidence-based standards that will be implemented in classrooms throughout the country over the next several years. Museums and cultural institutions across the country are working to better understand Common Core Learning Standards so that their program offerings will dovetail and align with classroom instructional goals and methods.

The New York State Education Department, the chartering umbrella for New York museums and historic and cultural organizations, has embraced the standards and has created a website to guide educators in the classroom and beyond at EngageNY.org. Some valuable resources from NYSED and EngageNY are:

Common Core Learning Standards for Pre-kindergarten.

Common Core Learning Standards for English, Language Arts and Literacy.

Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics.

Draft K-8 Common Core Social Studies Framework
