Common Core State Standards and Library of Congress Teacher Resources

The Library of Congress Teachers Page has incorporated the Common Core State Standards into their teacher resources.  From the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog announced yesterday that we are now able to search for materials based on CCSS.  The Search by Standards option has been in place for a couple of years and results are presented exactly the same.  If you are looking at a specific lesson plan, instead of a list of standards you are now able to search for the aligned CCSS as well.  

I haven't had the opportunity to explore this yet, but I did want to share the new feature with you.  Please feel free to share your thoughts as Melissa and I are trying to learn about the CCSS and how we can improve TPS EIU to support teachers in the classroom.
