Open Source CCSS Resources

There are a gazillion CCSS resources out there in cyberspace calling for our attention.  Sifting through for the ones that you might like to use in your own classroom can be daunting.  I have spent a great deal of time in that “black hole” of the internet, getting lost in my searches.  Although I sometimes walk away wondering where the time went and what I really accomplished, there are times when I hit the proverbial jackpot.

One terrific resource is http://odelleducation.com/resources.  This organization is creating open source CCSS units paid for by a grant.  That means anyone can use them and some of the work there is really impressive.  Although I don’t always love the texts they choose, the methodology and support materials they create for students are terrific and I find myself “borrowing” some parts for lessons I am already teaching.  You can use a unit from start to finish or you can pick and choose pieces that you want to try.

It is a good way to see what the professional curriculum writers think CCSS units should look like.  Whether or not we agree is another story…………….Tracey
