As the Common Core Standard s continue to roll out in schools all over the country, PD developer School Improvement Network is proud to announce the release of yet another instructive tool into its suite of Common Core products.
On Tuesday, January 31, 2012, Common Core expert, Dr. Lisa Leith, in conjunction with School Improvement Network, will present a webinar titled “Common Core Standards: Equity and Opportunity.” Previous webinars, given on topics like classroom management, equity, and lesson planning strategies, have drawn thousands of participants, and presented powerful strategies for improving classroom practice. Seats are limited; to reserve your place register as soon as possible at http://www.schoolimprovement.com/pd360-free-pd/webinars.
Dr. Leith’s webinar will examine the social, emotional and academic profile of the struggling student. She will then explore the potential that integration of Common Core Standards offers for meeting the needs of the whole child, for empowering students to drive their own learning pathways, to increase motivation and relevance, and to refocus students and teachers on success beyond school.
“Common Core Standards: Equity and Opportunity” will run from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Mountain Standard Time. It will include a 30-40 minute presentation, supported by digital media (PowerPoint, video, graphic files) and end with a 15- to 20-minute “question and answer” session.
