Aligning Your Curriculum to the Common Core State Standards provides educators with an excellent blueprint for adapting their current curriculum to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Stressing the imortance of teachers and school staff speaking the same academic language, the book also recommends strategies school leaders can use to promote the institutionalization of a meaningful academic vocabulary.

Written by Joe Crawford, an educator with more than 30 years of school experience, this highly useful book helps teachers, principals, and other school administrators gain a comprehensive understanding of the CCSS, and outlines a step-by-step process for developing and refining the curriculum so that student achievement increases and standards are met. 

The book is divided into the following five parts:

  1. Overview of CCSS and Associated Leadership Issues
  2. Curriculum Issues and a National Curriculum Model
  3. The Development and Use of Local CCSS, Quarterly Instructional Objectives, and Common Formative Assessments
  4. A Sample K-12 Curriculum
  5. The Journey Ahead

Resources provided at the end of the book include reproducible forms for developing content standards, as well as forms for identifying instructional objectives and feedback forms.  Additionally, readers receive access to Internet-based software that can be used for curriculum mapping and assessment.
