We are currently working on a significant upgrade,
which we hope to launch in early October.
Watch for a tweaked design and much better functionality
for both the Common Core Project and the Subject Area Project!
In the meantime,
we have already improved the functionality of the huge

These lists provide information for homeschool parents relative to the Common Core Standards (CCS) - alternately known in some contexts as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), or the College, Career and Civic Life Framework (C3) - currently being implemented across the country.
The 27 MASTER LISTS (one each for Numerical Names and each letter of the alphabet) - as well as the other lists available for download - identify which homeschool-related companies and products have explicitly chosen to align with the CCS/NGSS/C3, which have some sort of coincidental connection, which are correlated, and which have chosen to remain independent. They contain important explanatory notes wherever necessary for clarity.
A separate list also identifies which Standardized Tests have aligned with the CCS/NGSS/C3 and which have not.
The lists are not about passing judgment on any businesses. In fact, homeschooling parents respect each company's right to make business decisions as it sees fit. Additionally, we do not claim any authority to dictate what any parent should choose; rather we honor each parent's God-given right to make educational decisions for his/her own child(ren).
The sole purpose for providing the lists – which are based on publishers' own written and/or verbal statements – is to offer factual full disclosure about a very important educational topic so that homeschooling parents will be able make well-informed educational decisions for their children. Just as these parents make a variety of other choices in terms of curriculum (i.e., creation science vs. evolution, Charlotte Mason vs. classical vs. textbook-style, spiral vs. mastery math), so, too, they should be well informed when it comes to the CCS/NGSS/C3.
1. It is imperative that readers take time to study and understand this site's definitions for each category; please do not assume you know the meaning of a category name without doing so.
2. Company and/or product names are shown according to the standard process for alphabetizing (i.e., if a title starts with A, An or The, the article is excluded for alphabetizing purposes, and names of individual people are listed as Last Name, First Name).
3. Search for publisher names rather than titles of individual books. In some cases, we do list individual titles, but it would be far too impractical to list every book by name.

While my COMMON CORE PROJECT research is a gift to the homeschool community, it does take many hours of my time, and I've incurred web hosting and printing costs as well. If you feel you benefit from my work, please consider making a donation. I am grateful for any contributions that might help to offset some of my expenses.
