Want to improve your teaching with Informational and Argument Texts in ways that will meet and exceed the Common Core State Standards in Reading and Writing in grades 3-12 and across the curriculum?
The SDE will be teaming up with the Boise State Writing Project to help teachers explore resources and techniques to assist them in the implementation of the ELA CCSS. This two-day workshop will introduce you to new ideas and strategies for the explicit teaching of argument and informational texts, as well as show participants where to find some on-line resources to help in the implementation of the CCSS.
The 2012 MTI webinars are designed to support school personnel in implementing the concepts and instructional strategies from the Mathematical Thinking for Instruction (MTI) course. In addition, the webinars focus on building familiarity and understanding of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by examining strategies, models and contexts that support their implementation.
