This is a PowerPoint created for my district that overviews the Common Core state standards and the PARCC assessment. This can be used to introduce or review both of these concepts with a group of staff, parents, school board, etc. at professional development. This PowerPoint also compares current EOC/ISTEP (Indiana assessment) questions to PARCC questions so staff can see the shift that must be made. This PowerPoint has been shown many times and it seems to really inform everyone that sees it!
