Library Of Congress Unveils Massive Common Core Resource

“The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is here and teachers are trying to
figure out how to best integrate it into their tried-and-true lessons.
They’re struggling to integrate technology to best augment CCSS. They are
in desperate need of classroom materials that they can trust.

Like a superhero, the U.S. Library of Congress has just swooped in and
unveiled an enormous new (and free!) resource that’s all about the Common
Core. It’s located at http://www.loc.gov/teachers and worth checking out.
Common Core Resources

You can now do a ‘Search By
query which lets you do exactly that. The software has just seen a big
update too. Select your state, grade level, and subject for a list of
Library of Congress teaching materials aligned to those standards. Or, once
you’ve found a lesson plan or primary source set that you’d like to use,
one click will show you which of your standards that particular item meets.

Find Library of Congress lesson plans and more that meet Common Core
standards, state content standards, and the standards of national
organizations. Click here to start your CCSS

ease of use, and written in plain English.
