The emphasis of this series of four workshops is how educators and school leaders can collaborate on creating curriculum, instructional and assessment strategies to meet present Common Core standards’ mandates, and to ensure students possess 21st Century skills. The workshops will provide participants knowledge and skills to take back to their workplace colleagues, and share their experiences with other workshop participants in a community of learners’ environment.  In addition, the workshops use a scaffold approach so that knowledge and skills learned in one session form a foundation for what is discussed in the following sessions.  The workshops are also designed so participants can collaborate with each other on ways to incorporate the knowledge and skills into practice.
