TERMINOLOGY
ACRE - North Carolina's Accountability and Curriculum
Reform Effort - comprehensive initiative to redefine
the Standard Course of Study for K-12 students, the
student assessment program and the school
accountability model.
Common Core - provides 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.
TERMINOLOGY CONTINUED
Essential Standards - The critical skills,
knowledge, and dispositions each student
must acquire as a result of each course, grade
level, and unit of instruction.
Crosswalk - simply: "A crosswalk links two or more
different classification systems."
Strand - A strand is a consistent thread running
through a course irrespective of its subject
content
Anchor Statement - further defines what students
should understand ... standard to support the
broad college and career ready standards
statement.
INTEGRATION NOT ISOLATION
Keep in mind that English Language
Development, Guidance, and Information
and Technology Essential Standards must be
delivered through ALL content areas. It is
also the responsibility of ALL teachers to
ensure that they are working with AIG, EC,
and ESL teachers to deliver the appropriate
services and standards for students.

& Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and
Technical Subjects
