Implementing the Common Core: Support your teachers in multiple ways

Here's another lesson in our "Implementing the Common Core" series from Insight's Dr. Michael Moody and Syracuse Superintendent Sharon Contreras.

Lesson: Provide several ways to support teachers during implementation. 

Dr. Moody: Successful implementation requires a thoughtful rollout of the new standards, and supporting teachers is a process, not an event.  

In addition to traditional professional development that explains Common Core Standards and connects it to planning, instruction and assessment, consider providing on-going, game-changing supports like coaching and online learning.

Superintendent Contreras: Absolutely. In SCSD, we’re providing our teachers and school leaders with school-based coaching, professional development and a full array of supports throughout the entire school year. Our teachers and principals also have access to several online learning tools to support their rollout of the CCSS.

How are you supporting your teachers for the Common Core rollout in your district or school? Submit a comment below.
