      Common Core isn't a curriculum, but strategies to deliver your curriculum. For example, in ELA, there are no requirements for exact text you need to read or specific prompts, but it outlines what you should focus on when teaching literature, informational text, etc.. The same is true for writing. So, it doesn't require you to get new curriculum, but to deliver that curriculum in a different way. The same is true for science and social studies. I'm not as familiar with the math standards, so someone else may need to discuss that.

      What grade/subject do you teach?
