After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
As states and districts implement the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), they will need to find ways to ensure the content is both rigorous and engaging for students, particularly in mathematics.
To help educators and education leaders address this challenge, Achieve and the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education (NASDCTEc) jointly piloted a process where educators evaluated, modified, and/or developed instructional tasks that demonstrate how Career Technical Education (CTE) content can be leveraged throughout high school mathematics.
All of the tasks below were developed by high school and postsecondary mathematics and CTE educators, and validated by content experts in the Common Core State Standards in mathematics and the National Career Clusters Knowledge & Skills Statements. They were developed with the purpose of demonstrating how the Common Core and CTE Knowledge & Skills Statements can be integrated into classroom learning – and to provide classroom teachers with a truly authentic task for either mathematics or CTE courses.
