One of the strengths of the Common Core Standards is that the design can place students’ education directly into their own hands. Giving students more control over what and how they learn empowers them, and makes them more eager to work
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
On December 1, 2011, PD developer School Improvement Network hosted the fourth webinar in its ongoing Common Core Standards series. Presented by education expert Dr. Lisa Leith, the webinar outlined strategies for employing the Common Core to develop better classroom management, and to motivate struggling students.
“One of the strengths of the Common Core Standards,” says Dr. Leith, “is that the design can place students’ education directly into their own hands. Giving students more control over what and how they learn empowers them, and makes them more eager to work."
Throughout the course of the webinar, Dr. Leith provided detailed, curriculum- specific ideas for utilizing the Common Core:
- Create clear goals for students
- Reconnect cause and effect
- Orient students in time
- Encourage future focus for college, career, and beyond
Dr. Leith’s presentation, with audio and visual components, can be downloaded for free online at http://www.commoncore360.com/webinars, along with the entire Common Core webinar series which is free and open to the public.
