SIRS and the Common Core

The database SIRSResearcher (Social Issues Resources Series) has a new feature that allows users to search for resources that fit the Common Core Standards.

When you open the SIRS database, look for the “Common Core Correlations” link along the top of the page. Click this link for drop-down menus that let you select specific states and subject areas. You can then look within each standard for a “see resources” link leading to possible topic ideas. Clicking on any of these topics automatically searches the database for relevant articles and multimedia resources in support of the chosen standard.
