In 2012, Headquarters JROTC agreed to associate the learning outcomes for each of the 188 lessons in the curriculum to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). To date, 45 states and three United States Territories have adopted the English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics CCSS.
The JROTC curriculum has been cross-walked with all lessons for the 9-10th grade ELA Common Core Standards, and Numbers and Quantity Mathematic Common Core. The crosswalk between JROTC curriculum and CCSS can be found in the Curriculum Manger (CM), Menu, Global Resources link. Standards linked or associated with JROTC lesson outcomes do not imply that the outcomes meet the requirements for acquisition of core subject area credit. However, by linking the Common Core ELA and Math as appropriate, the curriculum provides a picture of how JROTC curriculum supports core areas such as English/Language Arts, History, Social Studies, Science and Technology, thus serving as state, district, and school wide partners in meeting education goals. Categories within the CCSS ELA that link to JROTC curriculum include the following:
Reading: Information as Text
Speaking and Listening
Reading: Historical/Social Studies
Writing: Historical/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects
The CCSS for Mathematics that link to JROTC curriculum is High School - Numbers & Quantity.
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our
young people need for success in college and careers. For more information on Common Core State Standards, go to http://www.corestandards.org.
Note: To view standards for states that have not adopted Common Core State Standards go to your State Department of Education website or consult with your school administration.
