NEW YORK, NY – (Oct. 30, 2014) – The New Mexico Public Education Department has approved Common Core Coach, an inclusive curriculum that adds depth, understanding, and practice to Common Core standards and skills training, for high school instruction in American literature, world literature and composition throughout the state. Developed by Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 texts and interactive digital tools, these Common Core Coach titles have been approved for use for up to six years within all public high schools in New Mexico.
