The Common Core Institute 2012 will be held at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center, immediately following the annual School Improvement Innovation Summit.
Common Core Institute participants will have the opportunity to develop a personalized working professional development plan for Common Core implementation, both school and system-wide, under the one-on-one guidance of Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Dr. Ann Johnson, two of the most renowned experts in the field of curriculum design.
In lively and engaging sessions, Dr. Jacobs and her colleagues will place a special focus upon upgrading work to match the needs of 21st century learners in school settings. Participants will receive specific strategies on how to organize their faculty to translate unpacked standards into curriculum units, map the standards, create formative assessments, and employ digital tools.
In addition, every conference attendee will receive free access to Mapping to the Core and Mapping to the Core: LivePlanner by Heidi Hayes Jacobs, a $210 value available on the new LiveBook platform. Dr. Jacobs’ dynamic texts are invaluable tools for anyone implementing the Common Core Standards, and give educators the framework, research, and case studies behind curriculum mapping, as well as application, implementation, and practical use exercises to apply the theory found in LiveBook. Your team will leave with a working professional development plan that will guide your implementation of the process school and system-wide.
