The Common Core State Standards and English Learners: A Resource Page

These resources will help you understand how implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will affect preK–12 ESL teachers and their students. New resources will be added as they become available.

The CCSS is an initiative in the United States launched by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association to develop common content standards for states to use in elementary and secondary education. The CCSS mathematics and English language arts standards were publicly released in 2011, with full implementation expected by the 2014–15 academic year.
