Webinars help with Common Core implementation

To help teachers incorporate the Common Core Standards (CCSS) into their English, Language Arts and math curriculum, MEA’s Professional Development/Human Rights Department will be posting links to a series of webinars. The first webinar will be available at the end of October.

Besides providing needed information about CCSS to teachers, the webinars will also detail the steps in implementing the Standards in school buildings. Discussion topics will be included with each webinar. The webinar series can be used as a local professional development opportunity.

Over the next two years, teachers will be expected to incorporate the Standards into their lessons. CCSS will replace current standards and become the basis for the development of state assessments. CCSS will eventually expand to include science and social studies.
