Quick Reference Guides for the North Carolina Standard Course of Study
The Quick Reference Guides for the North Carolina Standard Course of Study have been updated for the 2018-19 School Year. There are nine Quick Reference Guides available – one for each of the grade levels from kindergarten through 8th grade. The inclusion of standards for all subject areas within single, grade-specific documents is intended to make planning for instruction more efficient and may be particularly useful for educators teaching multiple disciplines or collaborating to plan integrated instruction. The guides are available for free download (PDF files) at: or you may order the guides by grade level through NCDPI Publication Sales:

Global Education

It is vitally important teachers prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to being competent and skilled citizens who are engaged and productive in not only in our local, state, and national communities, but the vastly interdependent global community also. To accomplish this, teachers of ALL content areas must embed global competencies into teaching and learning, daily. Educators should use the Global Education Resources Document to develop aligned curriculum, units, lessons, and other resources, as well as extra-curricular programs, student services programs, and professional learning opportunities. The Global Education Resources Document contains global connections found in the content areas in the NC Standard Course of Study, along with supporting resources and tools.
