Full program description
If you are interested in strengthening your novice teachers’ ability to teach Common Core ELA content, or want to probe the relationship between the “shifts” and advancing justice through teaching, this learning set is for you. Each course digs into a central topic in the ELA Common Core State Standards, examines curriculum materials focused on that topic and the demands of teaching from them, and explores activities for building novice teachers’ ability to teach the topic, and always with a deliberate focus on advancing justice. You may register for all six courses in this learning set, or you may opt to register for specific courses. The first course in the learning set, Introduction: Standards, Equity, and Achievement in English Language Arts, is a prerequisite for the final four courses in this set, but not for Building Academic Language and Supporting English Learners. There is no fee for this first course.
