ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
Literacy and Common Core in a Digital World
Preparing students to be deeper readers, writers, and thinkers

Audience: K-12 ELA and Content Area Teachers

Rigor, text complexity, close reading, text-based questions, evidence from sources… the CCSS brings new standards that are driving both shifts in teaching and new learning expectations for students. Literacy and Common Core in a Digital World will help strengthen your core by preparing you to unwrap the standards, align instructional strategies to CCSS instructional shifts, and use digital media and tools to help your students become the skilled readers, writers,
and thinkers needed in our global economy.

This professional development provides:

  • English Language Arts instruction and assessment strategies to support the development of digitally literate students in preparation for college and career expectations.
  • Instructional strategies aligned to the CCSS instructional shifts including close reading, text dependent questions, teaching academic vocabulary with complex texts, and using digital media and digital tools. 
  • Strategies to leverage digital resources in support of balanced literacy and content area classrooms.
