If the purpose of Common Core is to be a practical language, then I think we need to embrace ways to visualize them. That way, we can make collaboration easier between teachers as we talk about what students learn, and we can better communicate the standards to students.
Language Arts Posters
In 2017, I created these posters to display standards in a kid friendly way that would be clear, concise, and powerful. In CCSS, there are six major domains for the standards that students learn during Language Arts.
Social Studies Posters
In 2017, I created these posters as well. In AERO, there are eight major domains for the standards that students learn during Social Studies. While students need to unpack full standards to understand them, I think there is value in displaying a two to three word "short cut" for each standard in a bite-sized way that help bridge how teachers talk and how students learn.
How you communicate standards determines how useful they are for students. Below is an example of how I like to post and unpack CCSS standards.
In 2013, I created a web-based digital menu to be able to read standards more easily. This is mainly a tool for teachers, but I think that students could find it useful as well. In 2016, I created a digital menu that is based on Google Slides, where each standard is analyzed meaningfully, and teachers and students can access them at any times.
