By the end of this session you will:
- Have a unit planning framework that will help you develop lessons that are backwards designed and aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
- Have a toolbox of lessons and strategies to teach in a way more aligned to the Common Core standards and practices.
In your classroom, you will see:
- Kids deeply engaged in rigorous tasks that require students to read, discuss, and write about complex texts.
Description: These sessions will guide you through the process of developing rigorous CCSS aligned unit plans. You will leave with a series of lessons and strategies that will ensure that you are addressing the shifts in curriculum required by the Common Core. These sessions will not only offer an immediate way to bump the rigor in your class this year but also prepare you for the full implementation of the CCSS next year. Please plan to attend BOTH nights.
