Coding the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
If applicable, the letter of the bullet for the standard will be identified.
The Common Core State Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level so they can be prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.
The four states that never adopted the Standards are Virginia, Texas, Alaska, and Nebraska. The four states who have successfully withdrawn from the curriculum are Arizona, Oklahoma, Indiana, and South Carolina.
Common Core States 2021.
During the development process, the standards were divided into two categories: First, the college- and career-readiness standards, which address what students are expected to know and understand by the time they graduate from high school.
The current set of arts standards emerges from the Artistic Processes of Creating, Performing/Presenting/Producing, Responding, and Connecting. Each artistic process branches into two or three anchor standards.
The National Core Arts Standards focus on dance, media arts, music, theatre and visual arts; the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) focus on English/Language Arts and Mathematics.
