Did you know that every CCP resource book meets all curriculum and state standards? Our core subjects follow basic curriculum needs to ensure students get the information needed to have a successful school year.
Our language arts resources are based on Bloom’s Taxonomy for Reading Comprehension. Along with individual state standards and the Common Core State Standards, Bloom’s Taxonomy classifies learning objectives. The activities in this resource engage and build the full range of thinking skills that are essential for students’ written composition. Assignments are given that challenge students to not only recall what they have read, but move beyond this to understand the text through higher-order thinking. By using the higher-order skills laid out in Bloom’s Taxonomy, students become active writers, drawing more meaning from the text, and applying and extending their learning in more sophisticated ways. Included in every resource is a Critical Thinking Skills rubric found on page 2 that highlights which skills are being met. To learn more, please refer to the 6 Levels of Thinking outlined below.
Our math resources are inspired by the NCTM Principles and Standards. Along with individual state standards and the Common Core State Standards, the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics targets 6 areas: Equity, Curriculum, Teaching, Learning, Assessment, and Technology. These Principles are the fundamentals to an effective mathematics education. These Standards describe what mathematics instruction should enable students to learn. Together, the Principles and Standards offer a comprehensive and coherent set of learning goals. Our math resources offer exercises written to the NCTM Process and Content Standards. Teachers can note, at a glance, which Process Standards are being met by referring to the Rubric found on page 2 of every resource. Also included is a Content Standards Rubric to use for student assessment. For more information, please refer to the NCTM Principles outlined below.
Our science resources meet the Next Generation Science Standards and STEAM initiatives. Along with individual state standards, the Next Generation Science Standards aim to integrate the content and skills of science in an approach to teaching and learning. The standards set out by the NGSS are designed to provide quality science education to students based on content-rich material and practice with aligned curricula. The STEAM standards aim to integrate the content and skills of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics in an approach to teaching and learning. STEAM brings a new hands-on approach to learning that encourages students to explore and interact with what they are learning. To get to know the STEAM initiatives, please refer to the outline below.
