Common Core Workshop in Massachusetts

red apple core

Hi, y’all, from the Massachusetts School Libraries Association’s Common Core State Standards workshop in Deerfield. The daylong workshop was archived in Elluminate; you can play it back here. It takes us a few minutes to finesse the audio so that our virtual listeners could hear and so could our face-to-face ones, so be patient for the first five minutes or so!

Here are some resources that might come in handy for today’s workshop:

Resources

Standards Activity – Massachusetts Educators
Select the highest grade in your school. Use that grade’s CCSS Standards to plot out what you will teach, what you will co-teach with a classroom teacher, and what you see as primarily the classroom teacher’s role. There’s also a column for your notes, ideas, and brainstorms. Some librarians used this document in today’s workshop to create their SMART Goals for the year. Others plan to turn in this document to administrators or Board members to show, in Common Core language, how their work contributes to the CCSS implementation initiative. A few others said they would use this to plan with teachers. How might you?
