SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announces that registration is now open for the Curriculum Mapping Institute 2013 with Heidi Hayes Jacobs and other Common Core thought leaders at the School Improvement Innovation Summit 2013, July 10-11 in Salt Lake City.
“Effectively integrating curriculum with the Common Core Standards is vital to successful implementation of the Common Core and increasing student achievement,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “The Curriculum Mapping Institute with Heidi Hayes Jacobs and the other Common Core experts gives attendees the opportunity for individualized attention to cater to their unique school or system situation and seamlessly integrate with the Common Core State Standards.”
The Curriculum Mapping Institute will feature Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Bena Kallick, Ann Johnson, and other Common Core experts for a concentrated, interactive training on how to align any school’s curriculum and assessments to the Common Core State Standards.
Institute attendees will learn how to:
- Use the Common Core Standards as a springboard to revise and replace dated curriculum and instruction;
- Develop a model unit curriculum map that emphasizes coherence, focus, and rigor;
- Examine strategies for cross-walking the Common Core Standards and revised standards to identify the non-negotiable and targeted levels of instruction; and
- Use the standards as a launching point to strengthen alignment and vertical articulation among all of the critical components on a curriculum map.
The Curriculum Mapping Institute 2013 will be held July 10-11 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City as part of the School Improvement Innovation Summit 2013.
