Common Core Videos Aligned to State Standards

Below you will find a link to the SOUTHEAST COMPREHENSIVE CENTER video series that focuses on Common Core State Standards. These videos are designed to support teachers in the implementation of Common Core, and provide examples that help enhance understanding. This is a great resource for both pre-service and in-service teachers! I encourage you to watch these videos.
