New Jersey Educator Resource Exchange
The implementation of the Common Core State Standards has truly transformed the way our teachers think about their daily instruction. The specificity of the standards, and knowledge of the rigor and complexity that students should achieve at each grade level, has helped our teachers engage students in daily experiences that will maximize student growth."
Donna Reichman, Assistant Principal Wayne Township Public School
The New Jersey Educator Resource Exchange (www.njcore.org) is a website created by and for New Jersey educators to share instructional resources for use in the classroom. The Educator Resource Exchange provides educators access to over 2,000 resources aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in both English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics (including literacy in science, social studies and CTE) and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS). Available resources include lesson plans, videos, and assessment items tagged to each standard in every grade level. Additionally, the site allows New Jersey educators to contribute resources to share best practices by uploading videos, lesson plans, and other instructional material connected to the standards. Only educators can contribute, rate and share resources. This will allow the number of materials to grow exponentially throughout the year.
The Educator Resource Exchange was built with the belief that parents are also educators. Parents can find information on the Common Core State Standards, what their child will be learning in school, and resources to work with their child at home.
