In order to assist schools and districts with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) has provided model curriculum modules and units in Pre-K–12 English language arts (ELA) and math that can be adopted or adapted for local purposes. Full years of curricular materials are currently available on EngageNY for grades Kindergarten through 9 in Mathematics and Kindergarten through 8 in ELA. NYSED is working with partners to deliver high quality curricular materials for all remaining grades in both mathematics and ELA. In Mathematics, full years of instruction will be available for all remaining grades in summer 2015. In ELA, full years of instruction will be available in the 9th and 10th grades in summer 2015 and 11th and 12th grades the following fall.
This curriculum and related lessons are comprehensive and multi-dimensional. They are rich with resources to help diverse learners. The website is also designed to help educators easily understand what is available on the site. For example: in ELA, lessons are organized by strand and by domain.
