What is the Common Core Curriculum?
The Common Core State Standards are a set of state-led educational standards that contain rigorous expectations for students from K through 12 to become college and career ready.
The Common Core Standards raised the bar to match the highest state standards in the U.S. and were benchmarked to international standards to ensure that our students would be competitive on the global market upon graduation from high school. Having a single set of consistent and more demanding standards helps teachers, parents, and students know exactly what knowledge and skills are expected for the students to acquire and provides the majority of students in the U.S. the same level of rigor and exposure to evidence-based content regardless of where they live.
How can we help with the Common Core Curriculum?
Eye Level is aligned with the new material that has been introduced with the Common Core Curriculum.
Eye Level Math and the Common Core Curriculum
Given that the developers of the Common Core math standards examined the standards of the top-performing nations for mathematics such as Singapore, South Korea, and Japan, the Eye Level program boasts excellence in math instruction with its origins based in Korea. The Common Core’s emphasis on proficiency in basic computational skills coupled with applications in problem solving, critical thinking, and reasoning is in line with the Eye Level math program.
Below, this chart shows the Eye Level curriculum in comparison to the common core standards (CCSS).
Eye Level English and the Common Core Curriculum
Eye Level English is based on the same four principles of the common core standards: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The Eye Level English program covers many of the Common Core content such as inclusions of numerous informational texts, an incremental progression of complexity in the texts, and the basic skills of reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary.
