Ever used DePaul University's Common Core Resources site? I consider it the jackpot of Common Core resources. If you are in need of lesson plans, ideas and/or materials for vocabulary, poetry, assessment, genres and more to raise the rigor in your classroom, check out this site. Guides and graphic organizers to support PARCC are also included.
Below are a few images of the links provided for teachers. If you click on any image in this post, you will be brought to the site. Once you're there, each click of your mouse brings you to even more links. You will find paired fiction and nonfiction articles, as well as anchor chart examples that can be created with your students. Carve out a little time in your day to sit back and peruse!
Hope you find this information helpful. If you know of any other Common Core resources for teachers, please share in the comments below. :)
