A Steep Climb: One Classroom’s Journey Into the Common-Core English/Language Arts Standards
How school districts move the Common Core State Standards from the central office into classrooms can make or break the undertaking. Education Week spent six months reporting on how the District of Columbia’s vision of the common-core English/language arts standards is being put into practice in one 8th grade classroom at Stuart-Hobson Middle School on Capitol Hill.
In the first three parts of the series, Catherine Gewertz explored the instructional resources the district has developed for its unusually aggressive and comprehensive implementation of the common core. She watched as its messages—and its hopes—trickled down to one school, through the district’s instructional coach, to the administrators, the 8th grade English/language arts teacher, and to students.
Two of the people she followed for this series—the classroom teacher and the district’s chief of teaching and learning—join her for this webinar to share the work of translating the common core into reality.
This webinar will be moderated by Catherine Gewertz, series author and lead common-core reporter, Education Week.
Underwriting for the content for this webinar has been provided by the GE Foundation.
