Discover The Common Core
Professional Development, Curriculum Planning, and Instructional Tools
To succeed in the rigorous academic environment created by the Common Core State Standards, your teachers must re-calibrate their instructional approaches. You and your staff will be challenged to move your students from skill acquisition to application.
Catapult Learning supports your instructional teams with custom curriculum planning, instructional tools, and job-embedded professional development as your school or district makes the transitions necessary to implement the standards in all curriculum areas. With the guidance and support of Discover The Core, teachers and administrators make the standards come alive for your students.
Know Where to Start to Discover the Common Core
Catapult Learning’s Discover The Core program begins with readiness assessments and goal setting activities that build awareness and buy-in. In collaborative planning sessions, your teachers and administrators explore grade- and subject-specific tools, such as sample unit plans and model lessons, that will help them lead your students to academic success.
Help Your Staff Meet the Common Core Challenge
Throughout the learning process, your teachers get many opportunities to engage with the new standards, discuss implications for teaching and learning, and integrate new tools into their classroom practice. Job-embedded professional development support encourages best-practice sharing and extension. Your school reaps the benefits of a professional learning community that extends across your entire system.
