Wednesday, April 10, 2013 3:00pm - 4:00pm EDT  
Host: ASCD

Are you prepared to teach to the rigors of the Common Core State Standards?

This webinar will help prepare teachers to deliver lessons that support the student learning expectations set in the Common Core. Based on research from the second edition of Classroom Instruction That Works, this webinar begins with an overview of powerful instructional strategies that are shown to have a positive effect on student achievement. Presenter Patti Davis will discuss how to match these strategies to specific types of learning outlined in the Common Core and provide insights on how teachers can become more proficient at engaging students while addressing the increased rigor of the new standards.

Participants will

  • Gain an understanding of text complexity framework (qualitative measures, quantitative measures, and reader and text considerations).
  • Learn how to appropriately select a range of complex texts, and receive resources to help with text selection.
