Common Core includes content standards for ELA and math, but in other subjects, for example science and social studies, the Common Core focuses on language strategies, but does not outline content. States have different content standards for history, geography, etc... and science teachers often use the Next Generation science standards for their content.
Common are content standards but they are deeper and more focused. Common Cores standards focus on the mastery of a deeper and critical thinking, reading, writing, listening skill that will unlock the door for students to access all content. I think of it as teaching student's to fish instead of just giving them fish (although in this analogy, the fish would be the content).
Thank you Katie and Melee.
