New Web Resource for California Educators
CCSS on Brokers of Expertise
The California Department of Education (CDE) is excited to announce the new Common Core Community Group on Brokers of Expertise (BOE). Here you will find educator resources for implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and that’s not all. BOE is an interactive environment for an online community of teaching professionals. We encourage you to utilize this site’s potential by providing comments or using the “favorite” option for resources you find here so that other educators may benefit from your experience. The CDE will use the feedback that you provide on BOE to learn more about which resources are most useful at the local level. More resources and information are added to the Common Core Community Group page on BOE periodically, so plan to visit the CCSS on BOE often, and if you aren’t already a BOE member, please sign up and join this vibrant community of California educators.
