Common Core 101 Webinar
Recorded November 8, 2011
Now that the Common Core State Standards are coming to just about every school, what every school leader needs is a straightforward explanation that lays out the benefits of the common core in plain English and gets everyone thinking about how to transition to this promising new paradigm.
In this webinar, John Kendall, author of Understanding Common Core State Standards, gave an overview of the new standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, highlighting their key aspects. He also suggested transition activities for teachers and districts to consider, including
- Creating a Crosswalk, which compares the content of the common core with your current standards.
- Developing transition documents that support deeper understanding of the Common Core State Standards by using current standards as a bridge.
- Taking the longer view of implementing the common core systemically.
