Common Core State Standards – free webinar series

Continuing on the same vein as my last post, I’d thought I’d pass along two opportunities to learn more about the Common Core State Standards.  With the DOE in the process of training teachers on the Common Core, these webinar series may be helpful.  Collaborative Learning is offering two series on the CCSS:

  • Series 1:  Common Core State Standards – The Common Core State Standards adoption has changed the landscape in instruction and curriculum planning.  Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and use the new Standards to effectively improve curricula and assessments.  Join us for a three-part webinar series to explore this new landscape and discuss implementation strategies to ensure success with the new standards.  Part 1:  Understanding Common Core State Standards, Part 2:  Bridging the Gap Between Common Core & State Standards, and Part 3:  Common Core Impact on Content Areas.  Starting this Thursday, 2/24 at noon Hawaii time.  To sign up, click here.
  • Series 2:  Deconstructing Standards – This three-part webinar series focuses on deconstructing, or unpacking, standards.  We will investigate specific standards to determine learning expectations, explore methods for investigating and determining the sequence and intensity of instruction related to standards, and define a process for moving from broad standards to learning targets and defined skills.  Part 1:  Building Rigor through Standards Across Grade Levels, Part 2:  Standards & the Operational Curriculum, and Part 3:  Deconstructing Standards:  Clearly Defining Student Skills.  Wednesdays at noon, starting March 9th.  To sign up, click here.

 I’ll be in attendance… hope to (virtually) see you there!
