As states move into implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS), questions are arising. The answers to these questions are many and often conflicting. Opinions, interpretations, advice, materials, and lessons are being offered by legions of consultants and companies.
This series of webinars on the Common Core State Standards offers educators the chance to hear from, and talk with experts who served in advisory roles to the CCSS development team. In their webinars, experts will discuss the knowledge base of the original CCSS report, ancillary documents, reports of foundations and policy groups, current implementation projects, and newly published research. The webinars will give educators the opportunity to focus on the core goals of the CCSS and to chart a course that supports literacy levels needed for the 21st century.
