New Webinars on Common Core | Difficulty & Complexity, Learning Synthesis, Planning Lessons for a Range of Cognition
From Wednesday’s inbox… I suspect that this will be the last edWeb item that I post (unless it is specifically related to K-12 online learning, as much of their recent content has been unrelated) – that is unless I hear feedback asking me to continue these items.
New webinars on Common Core State Standards. View as a webpage.
Difficulty and Complexity in the Classroom – Doing Both and Saving Time
Monday, Oct. 20 at 5PM ET
The challenge of meeting the requirements of increased rigor and depth can be impossible if we don’t create strategies to save time. How can we combine projects, practice, and prompts to achieve difficulty and complexity requirements simultaneously?
College & Career Readiness Standards support integration because of their structure and their progression. In this session, we identify the key standards for priority focus and direct instruction investigation, balancing rigorous difficulty and deeper cognitive complexity. We learn to save time by focusing curriculum and instruction on the most critical, impactful areas for students. Newly released assessment items also help us focus on key strategies for implementing the standards.
Coming Later this Fall
Writing Instruction for Learning Synthesis
Monday, Nov.10 at 3PM ET
Planning Lessons for a Range of Cognition
