About The Course
The Common Core State Standards are
new and will challenge our students to show evidence of learning in new
ways. Instructional shifts are required, especially for teachers who must
now incorporate literacy into content areas. Integrating the literacy standards
can be difficult to do well. In this course you will have the support of a
community and harness the power of collaboratively exchanging ideas with
colleagues, as you explore a variety of Literacy Design Collaborative tools to
align curriculum with the Common Core.
Each week you’ll explore one aspect of the Literacy Design Collaborative model, choosing from a variety of resources to differentiate for your own learning. You’ll then participate in a discussion forum to share you insights, questions, and applications with others.
