The Common Core State Standards and Equity: Educators Tell Their Stories

This webinar focused on the intersection of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and equity. In 2014, the Alliance began documenting—through a series of video monographs—the stories of schools, districts, and states across the country as they implement the CCSS. Specifically, educators shared what they are doing to ensure that struggling secondary students are prepared for college, a career, and life. Their insights from the practitioner level serve as a valuable resource for other schools, districts, and states as they implement the CCSS.

Project 24 Webinar Personalized Professional Learning In The Digital Age

Webinar:

Personalized Professional Learning in a Digital Age

On January 8, 2015 the Alliance for Excellent Education hosted a webinar in its Project 24 leadership series. For years, the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to professional learning has been prevalent in schools across the nation. Educators are often brought into large group rooms and a “sit and get” model of professional learning is utilized. Quite often, educators are left feeling frustrated and districts wonder why there is little evidence of impact in a traditional model. In recent years, the concept of educators being empowered to take charge of their own professional learning has gained momentum.
