Spotlight on Implementing Common Standards
FREE! As the Common Core State Standards take hold in schools, educators are changing approaches to teaching, testing, textbooks, and professional development. This Spotlight reviews some of the new texts aligned to the standards, results from the earliest student assessments, principal training efforts, and ways to reduce costs associated with common-core implementation.
This webinar highlights the Rhode Island Interim Assessment Program, an initiative funded by Race to the Top designed to help districts transition to the common core.
