If you are interested in participating in the Core Task Project, you can earn one half-credit by taking advantage of a spring version of the course. The inservice CTP takes place over 2 four-hour sessions on May 9th and May 23rd. As the course description notes, “The Core Task Project considers how to align classroom practices to the CCSS, the SBAC assessment, and the Publisher´s Criteria. Through an exploration of the close reading strategy, participants will consider implications for all areas of literacy instruction. Participants will be expected to try a close reading exemplar lesson with their students so that they are able to reflect and debrief in the follow-up session.”
