The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education requests funds to create an initial "canon," or collection of high-quality primary source materials, that can be accessed online by K-12 teachers and students. These core documents, likely to be selections in the areas of science, math, and social studies, could then be used to improve the rigor of curricula and assessments developed for the Common Core standards.
