You may also want to look at the Common Core and Ed Tech blog at , which I co-author. We focus on practical, classroom-tested edtech resources to support Common Core implementation. So far, we've been very pleased with the response from the education community. Please take a look! Thanks.

This is a good starting point but I am sure there are other Common Core blogs other there. For example, Closer Readings written by the EDSITEment staff from the National Endowment for the Humanities. We post once a week and cover the intersection of humanities and common core.

In Connecticut, the adult education system is using Common Core, also. Are there any blogs from our level?

Hi Shelly. Edutopia's mission is K-12 focused, but I was able to find an offsite resource for you.

From their website: "This collection includes video of adult education instructors exploring the Common Core. Printable charts and guidelines allow you to follow along and begin working with the standards yourself.

The collection was produced by Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) and KET as part of KYAE's efforts to introduce adult literacy, basic education, and GED(r) instructors to the Common Core."

Hope this helps!

Thank you for compiling this list! I'll check out a few of the blogs and pass the information on to my coworkers.

If you are interested, I often post about the CCS on my blog as I try to make speech services relevant to student needs in their general education classrooms.

Imagine being able to teach students Common Core Math concepts using a hands-on approach. Don't make students memorize a concept, help them understand the concepts. The AIMS Education Foundation has produced 9 grade level specific activities bundles each aligned to the CCSS for math. You can get free samples here.
