“Digging Deep into the Common Core” Course

The Northwest Inland Writing Project has been researching both the expectations of the Common Core on teachers as well as on students.  We have been reviewing, organizing and preparing the data to help facilitate a smooth transition for teachers into this new realm of standards.  Please join us for a one week training, “Digging Deep into the Common Core”.

There will be two classes offered this summer.  One in Moscow July 9th-13th and one in Coeur d’Alene July 16th-20th.  Both classes will prepare you to:

  • Navigate through individual literacy standards for your grade level
  • Develop an understanding of what skill sets and knowledge your students will be required to have for mastery of each standard
  • Prepare authentic lessons that match both your school’s curriculum as well as the Common Core State Standards
  • Bring back strategies and tools to help facilitate training in your school to develop this knowledge as a staff

Cost: $125.00
