Common Core State Standards

The Common Core State Standards represent a collaboration by American states to set the same goals for student learning. Within the standards, explicit text levels are given across the grades to ensure that high school graduates are college and career ready. Beginning with grades 2-3, target text levels have increased from previous recommendations. TextProject has responded rapidly to this need with research-based resources that will guide and inform educators, parents, and community leaders.
