Making the Common Core Standards Work: Using Professional Development to Build World-Class Schools

About the eBook

Essential reading for school leaders!

With the Common Core State Standards adopted by the vast majority of U.S. states, educators face the challenge of translating the standards into successful, positive change within schools. Written for school leaders, this practical guide offers a blueprint for implementing and exceeding the new standards using very targeted professional development.

Readers will find realistic strategies supported by examples from a diverse range of schools. Topics include

  • Empowering teachers and staff as partners in planning for and implementing the new standards
  • Adapting existing curriculum to meet goals for mathematics and language arts at each grade level
  • Designing assessments that measure mastery of the standards
  • Ensuring that the standards benefit learning for all students, including multicultural learners

Lead your school or district in fulfilling the promise of the Common Core State Standards and preparing students for a competitive global economy.
