May 2010 National Common Core Institute Resource Materials

In May 2010, state teams and representatives from Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio were among 250 participants attending a two-day institute designed to help them think about how to localize the Common Core State Standards

Overall, the institute was a great success and provided participants a chance to learn more about the Common Core State Standards as well as different tools, practices, and resources to support the local implementation of the core standards.  Following are the materials that were disseminated:
