The Center on Great Teachers & Leaders released a brief answering the question: How are states aligning teacher preparation program curricula to the Common Core State Standards? In this brief, state chiefs discuss how they support teacher preparation programs in transitioning curricula and clinical experiences to prepare new teachers for Common Core State Standards, including the following:

  • Aligning teaching and licensure standards to the Common Core.
  • Supporting faculty through professional development.
  • Integrating the Common Core into program approval and accountability requirements.
  • Integrating the Common Core into state teacher licensure assessments.
