Iowa Common Core Resources

Many people have questions and concerns about what is in the Iowa Core.  The Iowa Department of Education has a very good resource for teachers and parents alike to get better acquainted with Iowa Core.  Here is their message:

Parents and the community are key components to students’ academic success. And to that end, there’s a section at IowaCore.gov directed at parents and the community.
Under the Parents and Community tab, there is a parents’ guide providing an overview of what students will learn by the end of each grade as directed by the Iowa Core. The guide not only provides an explanation, but also gives parents an understanding of what is being taught, enabling them to reinforce lessons at home. 
There also is a collection of resources provided by the Iowa Reading Research Center designed to help parents support their children’s educational needs.
In addition to Community Resources there are Educator Resources and the actual standards and essential skills are listed for easy searching.  With these resources, I encourage everyone to check out Iowa Core for yourself.  I think you'll find it a very good resource.
