Georgia Southern University hosted a Common Core Summit: Summer Leadership Academy to introduce high school educators in various content areas on how to effectively implement the Common Core Standards.

The standards were adopted by the state of Georgia because of its concise premise of focusing on problem-solving skills, reasoning skills and communication for its students.

While 45 states across the country have officially adapted the standards, many school districts across the state are baffled regarding its full implementation. The questions often asked are, How do we implement the standards? and, when we do, How do we know we are implementing them in an appropriate manner?

District and school-based administrators should continue to offer full support to its teachers as they undergo this curricula paradigm shift. As teachers began to unpack the standards to make them easier to understand, ongoing evaluations need to be made to determine what necessary shifts are needed to move forward.

Most importantly, instructional leaders need to make sure that they are promoting the changes necessary to ensure quality implementation of its state standards that supports this national curriculum.

Educators in Action

Literacy + CTE = College and Career Readiness

Each year, I always like to step outside my box and attend a professional development training that does not specifically relate to my career path. This year, I chose to attend an institute that was hosted by our state department of education. I am happy to report that it was well worth my time.

GACTE Continues to be on the Cusp of Great Things

The Georgia Association of Career and Technical Education serves as a platform to foster leadership, program development, advocacy, policy development, professional development, and networking opportunities for its members in Georgia. Over 2,500 members attended the conference with the premise of promoting career and technical education.
