Curriculum- 2nd Grade
Major changes are coming to North Carolina's curriculum in 2012-13 because we will begin using the
Common Core & Essential Standards.
The Common Core are national standards in reading, language arts, and math that have been adopted by 45 states.
The Essential Standards guide the curriculum in other subjects across North Carolina.
Together they replace the N.C. Standard Course of Study.
The goal of the new standards is to provide a more rigorous curriculum and a deeper understanding of content.
To learn more about it, check out this presentation by David Fonseca, assistant superintendent of instructional services:
Also, check out the Common Core website, it is loaded with great information!
I will be working very hard this year to implement the Common Core Standards in
our class to better prepare your children for the future!
