Learning Point Associates and the Council of Chief State School Officers have developed a hands-on two-day institute that will answer the question:

How Can We Localize the Common Core Standards?

REGISTER EARLY!!! Seats are limited. Registration will close when we reach our capacity. In order to guarantee your reservation at the institute, we recommend that you register no later than April 5, 2010.


Benefits of Attending

Participants will interact with experts and meet in teams to begin to analyze the impact of the Common Core Standards on current assessment and instruction practices.

During the institute, participants will engage in the following activities:

  • Develop a state or district work plan with goals and strategies for localizing the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
  • Work with the following tools to begin localizing the Common Core Standards:
    • Concrete examples of strategies that work in aligning standards, assessments, and instruction practices
    • Processes to facilitate collaborative conversations
    • Concrete examples of 21st century assessments
    • Instruments to measure progress
  • Engage with a network of peers to continue conversations and foster ideas outside the institute or to support the implementation of their work plan after the institute is over.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion for attending.

Who Should Attend

We encourage schools, districts, and states to send a team of four or more staff members who can continue to foster these collaborative processes and conversations to support successful implementation of a plan for localizing the Common Core Standards.

We encourage schools, districts, and states to send a team of staff from across the organization (including those engaged in assessment, curriculum, instruction, leadership, and school improvement) in order to develop a comprehensive and coherent systemwide work plan.
