Webinar – Common Core: Challenges, Opportunities, and Next Steps

Join the KDP Public Policy & Advocacy Committee for the first of three free webinars addressing the new Common Core State Standards. The webinar is Wednesday, Dec 5, from 8:00-9:15pm EST. Registration is free and open to all, even if you aren’t a KDP member! For more information and to register, visit: http://www.kdp.org/communities/webinars.php#dec5

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Common Core State Standards, the possible effects on stakeholders, and the potential further steps. Teachers, students, administrators, and communities will learn how to develop outcomes of common core standards by making local changes that have global implications. This webinar will cover three aspects of the common core:
1. Leadership – There are specific steps for leaders to remember in supporting the implementation of CCSS.
2. Implementation – Both administrators and teachers need to apply particular principles in implementation.
3. Next Steps – The next steps include educating school boards and communities as well as planning lessons to meet the CCSS.
In addition to exploring how teachers can embrace the change to Common Core, this webinar will also present some of the challenges and caveats that should be examined as we proceed with the new standards. How can you work though it and remain faithful to best practices?
