Students in Dr. Margaret Ferrara’s CTL 746 class—a course focused on the principles of curriculum development—moved through some foundational pieces on the Nevada Academic Content Standards and the Common Core. Participants learned about the instructional shifts, the Instructional Practice Guides, pedagogical engagement strategies, and reviewed a video from cognitive scientist Dr. Dan Willingham on “mental obstacles.” You can review the PowerPoint and handouts in the links below.
