In June 2010, Wisconsin adopted the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics, including the literacy in History, Social Studies, Science and the Technical subjects, for all students. These standards define K-12 academic standards which are aligned with college and work expectations, include rigorous content and application, and are internationally benchmarked. Additionally, the Common Core State Standards emphasize literacy in all of the disciplines. For all students to be career and college ready, including students with significant cognitive disabilities, educators should include both the content and the reading and writing skills that students need to demonstrate learning in the other disciplinary areas.  Oct 4, 2013, 11:59 AM Eileen Thorpe

To help educators understand the Common Core State Standards and their application to students with significant cognitive disabilities, the Dynamic Learning Maps™ consortium has created and will continue to create self-directed learning modules. Each of the interactive modules is short (30-45 minutes on average) and focuses on a single topic. When you complete a module, be certain to complete the information regarding your name, school, and state so that you will receive credit where available. If you have questions about these modules, please contact dlmpd@unc.edu  Oct 4, 2013, 12:03 PM Eileen Thorpe

The National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) is a project led by five centers and 26 states (15 core states and 11 Tier II states) to build an alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards (AA-AAS) for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The goal of the NCSC project is to ensure that students with the most significant cognitive disabilities achieve increasingly higher academic outcomes and leave high school ready for post-secondary options.  Oct 7, 2013, 1:08 PM Lisa McInturf
