This brief examines how Linked Learning, an innovative approach to high school reform, offers an advantage to teachers, schools, and districts implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Both the CCSS and Linked Learning seek to prepare students for college and career by connecting learning in the classroom with real-world applications outside the school. Practitioners, administrators, parents, policymakers, and others can use this brief to discover strategic approaches for combining the CCSS and Linked Learning to design high-quality, relevant, 21st century instruction for all students.
