The one- and two-day institutes will be held in nine U.S. cities between November 2013 and February 2014 on five Common Core topics.
"These new ASCD institutes on the Common Core State Standards will introduce educators to strategies and plans for determining Common Core readiness," said ASCD Executive Director and CEO Dr. Gene R. Carter. "We created these institutes to equip educators with the tools they need to succeed for a smooth, successful implementation of the new curriculum."
Each one- or two-day institute targets a specific audience of educators with skills they need to implement the Common Core standards in their particular role. Among the institute instructors are ASCD Faculty members Judy Carr, Donnell Gregory, Janie Smith, Tim Westerberg, Nicole Clifton, Jennifer Beasley, Allison Zmuda, and Opal Davis.
