This suite of books gives teachers unprecedented support in mapping curriculum and student learning targets to the Common Core Standards. The Mapping to the Core suite presents step-by-step theory and instruction that guides teachers through the process of creating a curriculum map aligned to the Common Core Standards.

About Mapping to the Core
by Heidi Hayes Jacobs


Mapping to the Core gives educators the framework, research, and case studies behind curriculum mapping. This inaugural LumiBook text takes educators through the vital task of integrating Common Core Standards. Mapping to the Core supports an online community of educators and enables collaboration across district and state lines.

Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs takes readers through a four-phase model that covers the following:

  • Understand basic mapping elements and types of maps
  • Develop core unit maps with integrated Common Core Standards
  • Establish core purposes for mapping reviews
  • Develop consensus core maps with benchmark assessments
  • Integrate literacy strategies into the maps
  • Align the maps using the five alignment perspectives
  • Update maps to engage the 21st century learner
  • Sustain the core mapping review process
