Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 11, 2011

Following the success of the first webinar in their Common Core series, School Improvement Network has hosted another presentation, entitled “Translating ELA Standards.”

Presented by Dr. Ann Johnson, former teacher, administrator, adjunct professor, and renowned expert on curriculum mapping, the webinar closely outlined strategies for integrating existent curriculum into the Common Core framework. Dr. Johnson went directly to pages within the Standards, highlighted key words and phrases, and demonstrated how they correlate to classroom practice in English Language Arts.

“Dr. Johnson’s presentation was invaluable,” says Curtis Linton, vice president of School Improvement Network, “first of all, because it came from someone with so much experience in helping schools turn curriculum around. Perhaps even more importantly, though, is the care that she treated the Standards with. Her step-by-step, focused approach to the topic was enormously enlightening. I’m confident in saying that every ELA teacher can learn something about mapping the Common Core from Dr. Johnson.”

Johnson’s presentation, with audio and visual components, can be downloaded for free online at http://www.commoncore360.com, along with the entire Common Core webinar series which is all free and open to the public.

Be sure to register for School Improvement’s November 17 webinar, “Translating Mathematics Standards,” presented by Dr. Debbie Sullivan, and stay tuned for upcoming Common Core webinars as they are posted on http://www.commoncore360.com.
