The Common Core Implementation Kit is a free tool that makes it easy for teachers to create Language Arts and Math lesson plans aligned to the Common Core State Standards all from within Microsoft Word 2013. Common Core consists of a series of course-specific Microsoft Word templates that access Common Core information through a Microsoft Office Task Pane that is displayed next to the lesson plan document. Common Core provides daily learning targets for Common Core State Standards, along with instructional notes, student friendly “I Can” statements, vocabulary lists, differentiation ideas, activity ideas, assessment ideas, common student misconceptions, and links to open educational resources aligned to the standards.

To create a lesson plan, a teacher selects the desired learning target and adds it to the lesson plan document with a click.  With just a few more clicks, a comprehensive lesson plan is complete a plan that includes resources tailored to the diverse needs of each student.  Future Common Core releases will be available for older versions of Microsoft Word and will include more Language Arts and Math course templates, as well as the ability to create lesson plans targeted to the Next Generation Science Standards.
