Standards-based instruction is at the forefront of education reform because it presents a framework to ensure that all students are engaged in rigorous curricula and prepared to contribute positively to an increasingly complex world. As we prepare to build capacity in implementing the new California Common Core Standards (CCSS), parents, teachers, principals and educators have identified the need for the translation and linguistic augmentation of the California Common Core English Language Art and Literacy in History-Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects Standards Standards (Common Core ELA/Literacy) into Spanish.
This translated and linguistically augmented version establishes a guide for equitable assessment and curriculum development, resulting in high levels of biliteracy.
