Common Core State Standards Initiative
First, go straight to the source. The Common Core State Standards Initiative website is comprehensive and well-organized. You can download PDFs of the English Language Arts Standards and the Mathematics Standards, see an interactive map of which states have adopted the standards, read a list of myths about the standards, and check out a FAQ that addresses many questions about them. You can also sign up to get a bi-weekly newsletter with Common Core updates from the Council of Chief State School Officers.
