Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
School Improvement Network today announces registration for the Curriculum Mapping Institute with renowned Common Core expert Heidi Hayes Jacobs is now open. The Institute shows how to map any school curriculum to the Common Core Standards through personalized, hands-on workshops led by Jacobs, Bena Kallick, Ann Johnson, and other Common Core experts.
“It is vital that educators feel confident in their understanding of the Common Core Standards and their ability to align their current curriculum to them,” said School Improvement Network CEO and President Chet Linton. “The Curriculum Mapping Institute with Heidi Hayes Jacobs is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for educators to work personally with one of the leading experts in Common Core, and map their local school’s curriculum to the Standards to ensure that every student graduates college and career ready.”
The Common Core Institute will feature personalized, hands-on workshops focused on unique Common Core training, including work in LumiBook and LivePlanner. Key topics will include reviewing alignment perspectives, mapping to the Common Core, and upgrading to digital media assessments. Attendees are encouraged to start their free trial of Common Core 360 to prepare for the Institute.
School Improvement Network’s Common Core 360 is a library of resources that moves educators from a basic understanding of the Common Core Standards to mastery-level implementation. Among other tools, Common Core 360 features an ever-growing library of nearly 300 training videos, including real, in-class examples of teachers using the Common Core Standards with accompanying downloadable lesson plans. Common Core 360 is an integral part of the Educator Effectiveness System, a system that delivers a process to improve teacher practice and arms educators with a set of powerful tools to drive the process. Research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Educator Effectiveness System experience dramatic increases in student achievement and educator effectiveness.
The Curriculum Mapping Institute will be held July 10-11, 2013 at The Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Seating is limited and reservations are honored on a first-come, first-serve basis.
