The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have been adopted by 45 states and have a major influence on what is taught and evaluated in schools. While the CCSS document is overwhelming it can be broken into three big ideas:

The CCSS focuses on helping all children become college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school.

There are 10 anchor standards in reading for grades K-5 and 6-12 that become more challenging as students move up in grade level. The anchor standards focus on comprehension, structure, integrating knowledge and ideas, and reading different types of texts.

Instruction shirts take place require teachers and students to focus on reading many informational texts, learning through reading, reading challenging texts, and discussing reading.
