Preparing Students to Become College and Career Ready

thumb-11

The National Common Core State Standards require schools and teachers to prepare students to become college and career ready. As students progress through the grade levels, students build strong content knowledge and learn to demonstrate independence. Using technology and digital media strategically and capably is a goal of the CCSS. Students and teachers can utilize and read online books to prepare them for a successful future.
