Training, planning and ‘pinning’ for the Common Core this summer
By Tyler on July 5th, 2012
This is one in a series of posts examining the Common Core State Standards and the conversation surrounding their impact on teaching and learning.
If you’re a teacher, it seems like there’s a good chance you’re getting some training this summer in the Common Core standards. Or you’re at least thinking about them and making plans and building lessons for next year based on what they say.
A quick search in the Google machine for “Common Core summer” tells me right away that there are some state-led trainings happening in Kansas and also in Florida. There’s also this one in New York run by Math Solutions (part of Scholastic). I’m sure there are hundreds more happening across the country as well.
This Pinterest page also popped up, full of Common Core resources for kindergarten teachers. And this teacher blogger from Georgia has a great post about her discovery of Pinterest and how it’s becoming a go-to place for teachers to share links and resources, including those related to Common Core.
Are you getting some training in the Common Core this summer? Are you planning at all for next year? And what kind of resources are you looking for?
