In this class, teachers explore how the Common Core State Standards put students at the center of learning. They see a new emphasis on interdisciplinary skills and critical thinking skills in the area of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Through video examples, in-depth readings, and downloadable applications teachers will discover that the CCSS have unique reading and writing standards for literacy in history, social studies, and science. Teachers learn practical ways to put the standards to work in their classroom, especially in the area of textual complexity and collaborative activities.
