New Common Care Resource for NJ educators!

New Resource on Common Core to be Introduced from the NJ Department of Education.

The NJDOE, in partnership with the Common Core Learning Engine, has released the New Jersey Educator Resource Exchange, a website that provides instructional materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS).

Currently over 2,000 resources are "tagged" to particular standards and the NJ model curriculum student learning objectives (SLOs). This is a free resource to New Jersey educators, which will allow them both to download instructional resources to use in the classroom, and to upload resources for other educators to use in their own classrooms.

The Educator Resource Exchange website will allow educators, parents and community members to navigate the standards, search for and download instructional resources, create a library of resources for later use, and establish a "resource feed" that will notify them when new resources are added to the site.

Among others, these resources include lesson plans, videos, and assessment items. Access to the website is free for all users and requires only a quick registration.  Educator Resource Exchange
