CommonLit serves an immediate need felt by all teachers who are trying to align their instruction to the Common Core Standards...I work with teachers every day who could benefit greatly from this resource.

As an ELA curriculum director for the Match network of charter schools, I have found no resource that is more valuable or immediately impactful in the classroom.

I use CommonLit all the time when planning my unit and yearly curriculum. Materials are rigorous and relevant in an easy-to-find, teacher-friendly format. I can tell it is a resource written by teachers, which is so important!
