Common Core Free Webinar   1 comment

If you missed our Spring Conference on the transition to the common core state standards, there will be a free webinar in June.  I will be posting some of the information from our meeting later this month hopefully.
 
 

Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics

   

Date: Wednesday, June 08, 2011
Time: 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsor: Pearson

In an ever-changing education landscape, a shift is taking place in academic standards. Formally released on June 1, 2010, the Common Core State Standards Initiative provides teachers and parents with a common understanding of what mathematics students are expected to learn as well as appropriate benchmarks for all students, regardless of where they live. The challenge for educators is understanding how we got here and how to translate this initiative into action at the classroom and school level. Join Dr. Francis (Skip) Fennell, current L. Stanley Bowlsbey Professor of Education and Graduate and Professional Studies at McDaniel College and Past President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, as he examines the Common Core State Standards for mathematics and their practical application. This webinar is targeted to both curriculum staff and administrators concerned with the transition to Common Core State Standards.

After attending this informative webinar, you’ll have:

    An understanding of the foundations behind the Common Core State Standards for mathematics
    An outline of what’s new and different in terms of the new expectations in mathematical competency
    A clear view of expectations for both students and teachers in the transition to Common Core State Standards for mathematics
    Practical tips for processing and implementing new standards
    Ideas on how technology can facilitate the transition

REGISTER NOW!

 

Free Webinar – Register Now. Space is Limited!

Webinar Speaker:

 

Dr. Francis (Skip) Fennell

Served as a writer of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000), the Curriculum Focal Points (NCTM, 2006), and the Common Core State Standards (CCSSO, 2010).

He is the L. Stanley Bowlsbey Professor of Education and Graduate and Professional Studies; Project Director, Elementary Mathematics Specialists and Teacher Leaders Project McDaniel College Westminster, MD.
