Achieving our goals is a process, a journey. Knowing the destination is important, but we also need to plan how to get there. The Common Core State Standards gives us a lot of ground to cover. The purpose of this app is to help educators navigate through the standards to select the appropriate pathways that will lead your students to reach their learning goals.

The Navigator organizes the Common Core Standards into topical, sequential “learning pathways.” Six general topics and over 50 subtopics were hand-selected and placed in developmental order. In some cases, the standards were further divided and rephrased to make them more measurable and concise. Each learning pathway reveals related standards from across domains and grade levels and connects to prerequisite skills and future learning.

This app will help teachers in regular and special education develop differentiated learning objectives and standards-based IEPs and lesson plans. Teachers can also use the Navigator with their students to show how how their learning goals connect with these nation-wide standards.
