Project 1: Literacy and the Common Core

The activities in Project 1: Literacy and the Common Core, are focused on providing staff with professional development and ongoing coaching in order to implement the Common Core State Standards, the ELD Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Professional development included Comprehension at the Core with Stephanie Harvey Consultants, Reading Apprenticeship, with WestEd, and Math Studio, with Teachers' Development Group. Teachers from throughout the district have been collaborating to create common core units of study, using the Rigorous Curriculum Design process, and the teams have been expertly facilitated by our instructional coaches. Activities also include support for long term English Language Learners at James Logan High School.
