Why Align Instructional Materials to College- and Career- Readiness Standards?

In recent years, states across the nation have adopted K-12 college- and career-readiness standards in ELA and math. As a result, states now have a stronger foundation from which to improve student achievement and boost graduates’ readiness for postsecondary education and the workforce. To implement these standards, educators—teachers, school and district leaders, and other personnel who support instruction—need to learn more about the standards and instructional strategies for teaching them.
