Note: Site administrators choose which standards they want to display for CRCs by selecting Main Menu icon. > Admin > Educational Standards. Select the desired standards, and then click Save.

Curated by Follett's team of K-12 classroom educators, they include the following open educational resources:

  • Lesson plans
  • Videos
  • Activities
  • Assessments

With CRCs, you can search by standard, share a collection and copy items. Teachers can use them to supplement their lessons.

CRCs are available in three subject areas – Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts.
