The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
Overlap with Digital & Media Literacy Education
"Students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas...
to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new.
The need to conduct research and to produce and consume media is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum.”
(Common Core State Standards, 2012)
