Be Conversant in Common Core
We are midway through the Winter 2013 WOW Series: Common Core Conversations with presenters providing “great resources to be incorporated into practice and into curriculum development.” Participants have enjoyed the increased interaction with each other and the presenters and are finding the content very useful and inspiring with “lots of strategies that teachers can put to use and share with other teachers and students.”
There’s still time to register for the remaining WOWs in March. We also plan to sell a package of the series recordings.
March 13: Creativity and Complexity in Math and Science
March 20: Selecting Literature for Gifted Learners in Light of the Common Core State Standards
March 27: Educating Primary Gifted Students: Analyzing Nonfiction Books with a Focus on Higher-Level Skill Development
Participants are also offered a bonus session--a special recording from NAGC’s 59th Annual Convention not available for purchase on the LLC. Hear from Common Core book authors and experts, Susan Johnsen, Baylor University, Waco, TX, and Joyce VanTassel-Baska, College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA, about what every gifted educator needs to know about designing and delivering excellent programs for high-ability learners including the use of the Common Core State Standards to advance student development.
