College and Career Readiness Standards
The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) provide a consistent, clear understanding of what our adult learners are expected to learn, so teachers and administrators 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 adult learners 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.
New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the Common Core
The New York City Deparment of Education is responsible for reporting to NYSED. In our partnership with NYSED, we look forward to working and learning together about how to prepare for the full implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards and to best support our schools towards college and career readiness for all students.
The video library is an innovative and differentiated resource that brings the Common Core instructional shifts, teacher and leadership evaluation and data driven instruction to life. The library, which will house hundreds of videos from around New York state, captures teaching and evaluation along a developmental arc and tags for characteristics like grade level, subject area, Common Core Standards and instructional shifts and teacher and leader evaluation rubric indicators. Videos range in length from short 5 minute clips to longer views of lessons up to 40 minutes. We encourage you to use these videos to support your professional development and to push your thinking around what effective teaching looks like in practice.
