Instructional Websites

The State Education Department has taken a number of steps to provide tools, resources, and support for the implementation of the Common Core and the new evaluation system. They  have worked closely with the authors of the standards to identify and explain the 12 instructional shifts essential for successful implementation of the Common Core. Attached are some helpful web sites with educational data tools that support data driven instruction in the classroom. Most resources are posted on EngageNY.org to support this hard work:   

  •         Tri-State Rubric & Review Process - A rubric constructed by the Tri-State collaborative (MA, RI, NY) to help teachers and principals determine the quality, rigor, and alignment to the Common Core of curricular materials;
  •         Common Core Toolkit - A compilation of many Common Core aligned tools and resources that span assessment and curriculum and can be used as part of professional development workshops.
  •         NY Math Emphases - Guidance about which content should be the major focus math areas for your students in each grade-level. (As you know, the assessment will prioritize the major work of each grade. This document highlights what that major work is and could also be a helpful tool for explaining the Common Core in math to parents and others.
  •         Video Series - Professional development videos that present the instructional shifts in ELA and Math required by the new standards through conversation with David Coleman, a leading author of the Common Core and the incoming President of the College Board.
  •        2015 NY State 3-8 ELA & Math Released Assessment Questions - On this page you will find links to access a representative sample of questions used on the 2013 and 2014 ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Common Core state tests. There are questions available in every grade (3-8) for both ELA and Mathematics. These questions have been annotated to display the kinds of thinking students are required to do in the new Common Core Tests. These documents will be helpful for better understanding the requirements and expectations of the Common Core state tests.
