Upcoming Event: “Pathways to the ELA Common Core,” Upstate Schools Consortium, SC

I have truly loved every opportunity to work with the educators of South Carolina, from the SC Department of Education researchers to administrators and teachers.  At each heart has been a strong belief in teaching and learning and seeing through the noise to look for what is best for each child.

I was delighted, then, to be invited to speak at one of the Upstate Schools Consortium at Furman University‘s annual conferences. This year the theme is “Rethinking Teaching.”

On September 17, I’ll present on the ELA CCSS, supporting educators in understanding their expectations, seeing ways our literacy instruction already supports these expectations and ways to adjust our instruction to support each child’s development and independence. We will think specifically about ways to not simply follow often conflicting-mandates, but instead make children the heart of our curriculum and teaching.

I’m looking forward to a great event!
