The Ayers Institute is very excited to announce the second year of Common Core Spring Training for Higher Education faculty. This year's training will provide two levels of Common Core Training in one day, at five locations across the state of Tennessee. Partnering again with the National Math and Science Initiative, this year's training will dig deeper into PARCC and writing, as well as cover Common Core in all content areas. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss newly released resources and updated implementation timelines.
The upcoming training sessions will be delivered in two Tiers in the morning session. First year participants will work through the Common Core standards in Math and ELA and explore Literacy in all content areas. Last year's participants will have the opportunity to delve deeper into Common Core with Math and ELA PLDs and implementation in content areas. The joint afternoon session will focus on the most recent updates on PARCC, with topics such as: technology, writing, and accommodations.
Six new full-length classroom lessons will be available in the INVEST Video Module in December, and an addendum to the Facilitator's Guide will accompany it in January. All participants will be able to get copies of the updated Facilitator's Guide at Spring Training. However, this year's training will not focus on the video module tutorials. The module navigation is available in the Introduction section of the Facilitator's Guide, linked in the INVEST video module. Take a look at our current lessons and the supporting resources on the INVEST Videos page.
