Instructional Supports and Scaffolds for Success in Implementing the Common Core State Standards

Cover

Introduction

The Common Core State Standards challenge students by setting more rigorous and intensive objectives for learning.  Teachers have the important task of teaching to grade-level expectations and encouraging career and college readiness in a way that promotes learning for ALL students.  As a statewide collaborative effort inclusive of teachers, administrators and specialists, the New Jersey Department of Education has developed the Instructional Supports and Scaffolding Tool to support academic achievement for our students.

This tool, although in its early phases of development, is intended to provide teachers with a means of targeted and responsive support.  Please visit the site regularly as we anticipate significant growth in its development in the near future.

The New Jersey Department of Education would like to extend our appreciation to the teachers and administrators who served in a capacity to offer their expertise, time and efforts to the development of this project.
