eSchool News Logo
2011 Free Webinar Series
Common Core Standards Call for Uncommon Shifts in Practices

Date: Thursday, April 14, 2011
Time: 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsor: SunGard K-12 Education
We are continuously challenged to meet the demands of the 21st century.  After many years of putting research into action, we finally have a national set of standards that is far reaching and will help us to provide rigorous curriculum, instruction and assessment. Most districts have already been aligning their curriculum to their own state standards. The Common Core will have implications for the work that has already been accomplished.  This webinar will provide some insights into what is new in the Common Core and how to build on what has already been done in your district.
After attending this workshop you will be able to:

  • "Unpack" the common core for its key elements

  • Develop a process for making system adjustments to curriculum maps

  • Consider the implications for developing performance based assessments

  • Facilitate conversations among teachers in Professional Learning Communities

  • Build Collaborative Strategies for Success
