Common Core and New Standards: The Basics and Beyond

This course will explain the basics of the Common Core, Pedagogy "shifts," and the imperative importance of Inquiry Based Learning for research. Participants will learn how to "repackage research" for the Common Core State Standards as well as higher level thought. Participants will have the opportunity to "repackage" a current unit for CCSS alignment and Inquiry learning. 
 
In the new section of this course, participants will learn how to make classroom connections in the Common Core and how Close Reading activities should naturally lead to research. We will discuss "knowledge journals," writing to learn, Text Dependent Questions (TDQ's) as well as Essential Questions for deep discovery learning. Join us to learn how questioning can be your superpower!
