Salt Lake City (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
As educators across the country begin wrestling over how to implement the new Common Core State Standards, School Improvement Network and Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs have the answers and the tools.
On October 25, School Improvement Network will host a free webinar with Jacobs, one of the nation’s leading experts on Common Core, about how to integrate local curriculum to the Common Core Standards. This integration is done in four phases and is outlined in Jacobs’ two-part book suite, “Mapping to the Core,” on the LiveBook 360 platform.
The webinar will focus on the fourth step of the mapping process, entitled “Advancing the Work: 21st Century Upgrades.” This step addresses how to escape the traditional confines of pencil and paper and move toward 21st century methods that engage students and make their education relevant. This webinar will feature an overview to the systematic way to implement the new Common Core Standards into local school curriculum.
Webinar participants will also gain an exclusive demonstration of LiveBook 360’s personalized and dynamic tools, and a planning session to ask questions to one of the nation’s leading Common Core experts.
The webinar will be Thursday, October 25 at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
