Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
As the Common Core Standards continue to roll out in states all over the country, many educators are having to implement them with limited information and training.
In order to provide teachers and administrators with as much guidance as possible, education expert Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs, in conjunction with School Improvement Network, will be presenting a webinar on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. (EDT).
The webinar, titled “Mapping to the Core: Planning for Curriculum Success,” will present step-by-step theory and instruction that guides teachers and administrators through the process of implementing the Common Core by creating a curriculum map aligned to the Standards, just in time for summer planning.
Dr. Jacob’s presentation will guide participants to:
- Understand basic mapping elements and types of maps
- Develop core unit maps with integrated Common Core Standards for implementation
- Establish core purposes for mapping reviews
- Develop consensus core maps with benchmark assessments
- Integrate literacy strategies into the maps
- Align the maps using the five alignment perspectives
- Update maps to engage the 21st century learner
- Sustain the core mapping review process
In this webinar, participants gain an overview of the innovative learning experience provided by Mapping to the Core LiveBook and LivePlanner, written by Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs and the Curriculum21 team. Mapping to the Core LiveBook and LivePlanner give teachers unprecedented support in mapping Common Core Standards implementation and student learning.
This webinar will be available to watch two business days after completion on School Improvement Network’s webinars page.
