The Common Core State Standards require that all students be able to read and comprehend texts of steadily increasing complexity as they progress through school so that they can independently read a range of texts. We have worked with several schools via our Secondary Literacy Pilot to glean understandings about the challenges and realities of this work. Several of the resources that are available on this page have been co-developed with NYC teachers. Currently, we have made several resources on Text Complexity available. As the year progresses and more resources related to secondary literacy are available, we will share them with you here!

For Families

The Common Core standards were developed by educators and other experts based on research and lessons learned from top-performing countries. The standards describe the skills and knowledge your children need to succeed in a rapidly changing world, including the ability to think creatively, solve real-world problems, make effective arguments, and engage in debates.
