In May, I blogged about using the EQuiP rubric (see below). The EQuiP rubric is a great tool to:
- Guide the development of lessons and units
- Evaluate existing lessons and units to identify improvements needed to align with the CCSS
- Build understanding of the instructional demands of the CCSS
At Keystone AEA, we recently surveyed our schools to determine their level of readiness and understanding of this tool. In efforts of better understanding the EQuiP rubric and its importance, please check out these great resources:

I love the opportunity when I get to spend some time with my colleagues from across the state. Today I discovered a great rubric for aligning classroom lessons and units to the Common Core. "The EQuIP rubrics should be used for: guiding the development of lessons and units, evaluating existing lessons and units to identify improvements needed to align with the CCSS, building the capacity of teachers to gain a deeper understanding of the instructional demands of the CCSS, and informing publishers of the criteria that will be applied in the evaluation of proposals and final products." To access these great resources, go to achievethecore.org and search for EQuIP rubrics.
