Children's Literature: Common Core Standards

Common Core Update

South Carolina no longer uses Common Core Standards.  For more information, see the Standards & Learning page of the South Carolina Department of Education website.


Some of the library's databases incorporate Common Core Standards - either tagging content according to standard or providing supplementary resources, such as lesson plans linked to Common Core Standards.

What Are Common Core Standards

"The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy."
