Common Core Course: Planning Instructional Shifts — Today Education Wyoming in partnership with Developmental Studies Center (DSC) announced the immediate availability of the Common Core Course: Planning Instructional Shifts to School Administrators and Teachers throughout Wyoming.
“Our participants can choose either six 90- or twelve 45-minute sessions. Whether you opt to lead this course yourself or partner with us, you will benefit from our field-tested, proven model for leading rich discussions focused on instructional shifts and classroom dynamics designed to achieve the requirements of the Common Core in Wyoming. We are here to help Wyoming Teachers make powerful, strategic changes to their instructional practice by connecting learning about the Common Core to classroom instruction,” said Christine Venturis, DSC Director of Professional Development at Developmental Studies Center.
Positive School Impact
Many School Districts and Educators in States that have adopted the Common Core have already benefited from attending DSC’s Common Core Course. According to one Administrator, that wishes to remain anonymous, “the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) does not provide a checklist that schools or districts can use to be 'in compliance', instead the standards allude to major shifts in practice in the ways students interact with one another. CCSS begs for a social emotional learning approach to be fully integrated in quality implementation of the Standards over time.”
“Our Common Core course consists of a series of facilitator led activities that guide teams of administrators and teachers through discussions, reflections, and evaluations to develop a deeper understanding of what is required for student success,” said Christine Venturis, “working with educators to think through the challenges of adapting their curriculum and instruction for the Common Core using the materials they already utilize is our goal.”
