Leading High School transformation for College and Career Success

Linked Learning Advantage: Using Linked Learning to Implement the Common Core State Standards

This brief examines the Common Core State Standards and their implications for Linked Learning, an innovative high school reform approach in California that prepares students for college and career by connecting learning in the classroom with real-world applications outside of school. This brief aims to address the ways in which the common standards align with and can be adopted by Linked Learning teachers, schools, and districts to ensure that all their students are ready for success in college, careers, and citizenship. This work is made possible through generous support from the James Irvine Foundation.

Linked Learning is the vehicle with the most promise to implement the challenging Common Core State Standards at the high school level... [and] lead to increased student engagement and achievement. The Common Core is the "what"; Linked Learning [is] the "how." Both share the same "end in mind" - which is students who are college and career ready.

- Pamela Seki, Director, Curriculum, Instruction, & Professional Development, Long Beach Unified School District
