Direct Instruction and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
In recent years, the Common Core State Standards have become a universal language for schools across our nation and play a significant role in instructional decisions made in schools, including curriculum selections. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed with the intent to provide a clear framework of what students are expected to learn and to ensure consistent standards, regardless of where students attend school. An evaluation of Connecting Math Concepts: Comprehensive Edition has been conducted by the publisher, McGraw-Hill, to demonstrate the alignment of the program’s content with the Mathematics common core standards. Connecting Math Concepts: Comprehensive Edition has a 100% alignment to the CCSS. Read more about the alignment of Direct Instruction to the Common Core State Standards.
