CCR Standards for English/Language Arts (ELA) and Literacy with Resources 

CCR Standards for English/Language Arts (ELA) and Literacy (510K PDF): These standards appear as Section 4 of the 2013 final report of the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education’s Promoting College and Career Ready Standards in Adult Education, an effort to provide states with a set of CCR standards aligned to Common Core State Standards.
CCR Standards Appendix B  Connections Between Standards (286K PDF): This appendix presents the connections that occur between and among the standards across the domains and may be useful when developing coherent instructional units. The ELA connections are presented on pages 96 and 97 followed by the Mathematics connections.
CCR Standards Appendix D  Understanding Text Complexity (228K PDF): This appendix presents information on text complexity – what it is, why it is important, and how to determine it – based on the explanation presented in Appendix A of the CCSS.
What's in and What's Out (182K PDF): This chart from Susan Pimentel lists the instructional shifts needed to teach the CCR Standards for English Language Arts. A PowerPoint with more details for each of the ten points can be found by clicking here.
Common Core State (CCS) Standards Appendix B  Text Exemplars and Sample Performance Tasks (2,847K PDF): These text samples are Appendix B of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. Adult educators will appreciate that the texts of particular interest to adults are indicated by the symbol:
CCS Standards Appendix C  Samples of Student Writings (729K PDF): These writing samples from the Common Core State Standards exhibit the qualities of exemplary performance at a specific grade in relation to a specific set of criteria for a particular type of writing (narrative, informative/explanatory, or argument).

CCR Standards for Mathematics with Resources 

CCR Standards for Mathematics (479K PDF): These standards appear as Section 5 of the 2013 final report of the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education’s Promoting College and Career Ready Standards in Adult Education, an effort to provide states with a set of CCR standards aligned to Common Core State Standards. The eight Mathematical Practices are included on pages 4850.
CCR Standards Appendix B  Connection Between Standards (286K PDF): This appendix presents the connections that occur between and among the ELA standards across the domains followed by the Mathematics connections occurring in Levels D and E with comments on those connections. The ELA connections are presented on pages 96 and 97 followed by the Mathematics connections pages 98103. This appendix can be quite useful for designing coherent units of instruction.
Posters of The 8 Mathematical Practices (746K PDF)  Though designed for the K12 classroom, adult educators will find the explanation and examples of the Mathematical Practices presented in these eight posters to be very helpful in their delivery of standardsbased mathematics lessons.
