Common Core Professional Learning and Implementation Training
Preparing schools and districts for the transition to the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Assessments will require a systemic and focused effort. Code X provides teachers who are confident with the key instructional shifts of the Common Core with rich texts and tasks to enhance their understanding and teaching. It also ensures that less confident or newer teachers have a professional learning tool and day-by-day instruction to implement the Common Core comprehensively, thoughtfully, and effectively. The goal of Code X Professional Learning will be to further educate leaders and teachers about literacy and the Common Core, specifically focusing on text complexity, close reading, text-dependent questions, academic conversations, informational text, and argument writing.
In Person Support
In Person Support for teachers and instructional leaders will focus on the implementation of Code X to create a shared understanding of the implications for instruction within a school or district and to prepare teachers and students for Next Generation Assessments and college and career.
These side by side sessions with Scholastic consultants take place within the classroom and are based on district, school, and/or teacher Common Core transition needs. This support focuses on classroom set-up, implementation support, instructional coaching, and data analysis.
Scholastic offers a full range of online support tools and professional development to help educators and school leaders effectively implement the key instructional shifts of the Common Core State Standards, including Code X webinars that will support teachers in internalizing the key instructional shifts of the Common Core.
Scholastic Achievement Partners (SAP) is a team of the country’s top leadership and instructional specialists working shoulder to shoulder with educators to develop great leaders, foster effective teaching, transform school performance, and, of course, implement Scholastic programs like Code X.
