Education Week Launches Common-Core Newsletter

For those readers who just can't get enough news and analysis about the Common Core State Standards, Education Week has unveiled a brand-new e-newsletter devoted to the topic.

The monthly publication—Common-Core Update—assembles articles, blog posts, commentaries, and other material from across the EdWeek website into one tidy, digestible package. You'll also find information on upcoming EdWeek events, including webinars and live chats.

You can sign up here for the free newsletter.

Here's a sampling of what would have reached your in-box with the inaugural edition, sent out today:

Standards Backers Seek Out Support of Parents
A number of national school organizations are trying to introduce parents to the common-core standards through written materials, videos, public-service announcements, and in-person presentations.

Common Core Reaches Into Science Classes, Survey Finds
The new standards aren't just changing instruction in math and English/language arts, new survey data suggest. They're also finding their way into a lot of science classrooms.

• Commentary: Going Online to Ease Common-Core Transition
Online learning communities will help make the transition to the common-core standards easier, Christine Newell writes.

Meanwhile, fear not Curriculum Matters readers. We'll continue to give plenty of attention to the common core right here on this blog.
