A Perfect Match!
A Note From the Editors
Here at Scope, our team is working hard to “unlock” the new Common Core Standards and to bring you all the support you need in this time of change. We’ve taken a close look at our content, lesson plans, writing prompts, and online offerings to see how they meet the goals of the Common Core—all while continuing to bring you the exciting, high-interest stories and activities that engage your students.
Here are five great resources we’ve created to help you understand the Common Core Standards and how Scope helps you meet them.
