“Leading the Core: ELA CCSS” finished its third session with a focus on creating the Common Core school. Several of the district’s Common Core Champions visited and shared their experience with CCSS outcomes, the instructional shifts, and the close reading strategy. (The roundtable discussion was filmed and will be posted relatively soon.) Following the roundtable, administrators reviewed Achieve’s Action Brief on implementing the Common Core and worked with free and vetted tools matched to the CCSS.
All of the items that were shared, including the PowerPoint, Action Brief, tools, and graphic organizers are available in the Edmodo group, “Leading the Core” using code 6r9ebw.
