STANDARDS
INITIATIVE




The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative
in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in
English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade.

The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA)
and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to
establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as
ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter
credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or enter
the workforce.

CORE
CURRICULUM




The Core Curriculum was originally developed as the main curriculum
used by Columbia University's Columbia College. It began in 1919 with
"Contemporary Civilization," about the origins of western civilization.

It became the framework for many similar educational models throughout
the United States. Later in its history, especially in the 1990s, it
became a heavily contested form of learning, seen by some as an
appropriate foundation of a liberal arts education, and by others as a
tool of promoting a Eurocentric or Anglocentric society by solely
focusing on the works of dead white men. In response, the College added
requirements for courses in "major cultures" during the 1980s. Recent
controversy over the "Core" has been related to whether visiting artists
to Columbia should have their works added to the syllabus, as was the
case with a play by Václav Havel in Fall 2006. A major addition to the
core was made in the 2000s, when a science literacy course was added.

WHAT
IS THE
COMMON
CORE?




Common Core State Standards (CCSS), In short, the CCSS is not a
curriculum but a set of standards defining the knowledge and
skills that students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade need to
master each year to be prepared for the next grade, and ultimately
college or work. Creating common academic standards across the
country was a state-led initiative, involving a coalition of
governors and educators. The actual standards were developed by
teachers, administrators, experts and parents.

Modeled after successful programs in the U.S. and abroad the Common
Core standards are meant to provide teachers and parents with a
shared understanding of what students are expected to learn. One aim
is ensure that kids who move across city or even state lines end up
in schools with the same information being taught.

OPEN-SOURCE
CURRICULUM




An open-source curriculum (OSC) is an online instructional resource
that can be freely used, distributed and modified. OSC is based on
the open-source practice of creating products or software that opens
up access to source materials or codes.

Applied to education, this process invites feedback and participation
from developers, educators, government officials, students and parents
and empowers them to exchange ideas, improve best practices and create
world-class curricula.

These “development” communities can form ad-hoc, within the same subject
area or around a common student need, and allow for a variety of editing
and workflow structures.
