New Common Core Teacher Materials Available


September 9, 2012


New Common Core Teacher Materials Available

Since a lot of career and technical educators were out of school over the summer, it is worth repeating that ACTE and America’s Promise held a Webinar in June featuring the work of the Missouri Center for Career Education (MCCE). The Webinar and slides from the presentation can be viewed on the ACTE Common Core Web page. New materials were added to the MCCE Website this month. Be sure to view the cross-curricular examples while you are on the site, which were referenced in the Webinar.

Teacher professional development and the need to support educators to ensure their comfort level with the Common Core State Standards and assessments has been a topic of concern often mentioned in the Common Core discussions and meetings in which I have participated. ASCD has released EduCore online teaching tools. While these materials are primarily intended for core subject matter educators, CTE educators may also find the materials valuable. If you have suggestions of how to make the Web information more CTE-applicable, please contact me at sdewitt@acteonline.org. Also, let me know what you would like to see on ACTE's Common Core Web page.

There are several Common Core-related sessions planned for CareerTech Vision 2012 including a one-hour briefing from the two assessments consortia developing assessments aligned with the Common Core, and a Common Core Share Fair two-hour session which is intended for attendees to share information regarding effective CTE Common Core practice. Visit the CareerTech Vision 2012 Web page to register!
