Building Ela Core Ready Learners

3 Credits
Have you experienced the feeling of being overwhelmed with the Common Core State Standards? The Common Core State Standards have been written. The question now is not 'Why are we using the CCSS?' but rather 'How do I use them to improve student performance and increase student engagement?' We need a plan for implementing them into the classrooms; a workable and feasible plan that goes beyond simply unpacking the standards or trying to make the old standards work with the CCSS. This exploratory course will open the doors to lead the standards into the classroom and build ELA Core Ready Learners.

NOTE: Required textbooks must be purchased separately.

I love to teach. I can’t say it any plainer than that. Teaching makes me feel incredibly alive. I am thrilled to watch a student grow to achieve his or her potential and I love to help other educators make this happen too. My courses are designed around proven research-based practices and strategies, and as a life-long learner I am constantly seeking new ways to reach and inspire my fellow educators. The online environment provides an opportunity for community with interaction between participants and me. I enthusiastically make myself available to everyone, sharing my experiences, helping with technology, and more. I look forward to traveling with you on this journey of education. Come and learn with me!
