NYSSMA Aligned to Common Core

Quck post, I found this info accidentally last night and think this is incredibly…….for lack of a better word…..curious.

NYSSMA, New York State School Music Association, has aligned its music “curricula” to Common Core.

“This crosswalk documents the alignment between selected learning goals from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA), and Mathematics. As New York State has adopted these standards, it presents us with a new and dynamic opportunity to demonstrate alignment between the learning described in the standards, and the concepts commonly taught in the music classroom.

This is not an exhaustive document, but rather a beginning. The reader is encouraged to continue to build the crosswalk with additional connections from classroom experiences.”
