Sometimes it is funny how things work out.  At a staff meeting just last week, someone showed Achieve the Core- and then on Sunday, it appeared in TeachersFirst.  If you are looking for CCS lessons, support for developing CCS based questions, as well as teachers’ perspective in the change in standards, you should consider this site.  It is K-12 based for both ELA and Math.  You can see the complete post here.
