Course Progression and Descriptions


Teaching and Assessing Common Core Math in a Digital World
6-hour course
 
Explore “the Core” with Discovery Education! The Common Core standards for math require students to demonstrate a blend of skills, conceptual understandings, and problem solving, and require teachers to integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice into classroom instruction. This course helps participants make sense of the Mathematical Practice and their successful implementation in the K–12 math classroom. Participants will explore resources, tools, and assessments that leverage digital media and technology to help students reach higher levels of math achievement, understanding, and application.
Literacy and Common Core in a Digital World
6-hour course
 
 
Explore “the Core” with Discovery Education! The Common Core standards for ELA bring a new focus to concepts that are driving both shifts in teaching and updated learning expectations for students. This course helps participants prepare to unwrap the standards and align instructional strategies to the CCSS instructional shifts. Participants explore strategies for using digital media and tools to help students become the skilled readers, writers, and thinkers needed in our global economy.
Leadership Strategies to Support Digital Literacy and the Common Core
6-hour course
 
Leaders in education understand that even the best standards are powerless to improve student learning and performance without effective implementation. A Discovery Education Specialist provides practical implementation strategies for immediate application in all classrooms. Participants develop a fundamental understanding of the necessary shifts required in instructional planning and delivery and explore the power of digital integration. Participants also examine assessment tools that support students in meeting more rigorous demands.
