The This is Common Core California Showcase is an endeavor to collect photos, descriptions, videos, student work, and testimonials that demonstrate what Common Core looks like for California’s students in their classrooms, schools, and homes. This content will be reviewed and compiled into an online platform so it can be shared across the state.

There is no better way to understand the Common Core than to see it in action. The Showcase not only provides the general public with a fuller understanding of what Common Core is and why it is critical for California’s students, but it also provides the opportunity for sharing great examples among all who work in support of our students’ success. All submissions will be entered into a random drawing for prizes, which will be provided by the Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation. Small prizes will also be given to early entries, while supplies last.

Questions? Please contact CDE Foundation Communications Manager Neetu Balram at [email protected].

Submission Criteria
