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. - Implementing CCSS Follett

All Webinars are Presented by

Kevin E. Baird

Kevin E. Baird serves as Chairman of the Board at the nonprofit Center for College & Career Readiness, which focuses on creating sustainable capacity in schools for job-ready learning outcomes for all students. Kevin is a self-identified library nerd who always has a paperback for take-off and landing as he travels the globe.

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
