Effective Standards-Based Instruction

Improve student achievement by improving teacher effectiveness through professional learning

All students, no matter their socioeconomic status or where they live, deserve access to teachers who are experienced, qualified and knowledgeable in standards-based instruction, which requires that teachers can effectively teach to the Common Core and other State Standards in their fields so that their students can demonstrate mastery of the required knowledge and skills. CORE’s professional learning workshops and site-based implementation services enable all educators and administrators to be more effective by helping them improve standards-based instructional practices to facilitate powerful learning.

CORE workshops are designed to be hands-on and engaging. Participants aren’t just expected to listen; they’re expected to learn through observation and practice. Our job-embedded coaching and site support services enable educators to plan effective lessons and implement research-based methods for teaching. CORE professional learning for preK-12 educators doesn’t last hours — or even days. It spans years. This ongoing approach ensures that change doesn’t end when we leave, but that it’s lasting and sustainable. The result is skilled students taught by skilled teachers.

CORE professional learning services include:

Reading, Writing & Language Professional Learning & Implementation: Guidance and support to implement proven reading, writing and language instructional practices that ensure all students have the skills needed to become proficient readers and writers.

Math Professional Learning and Implementation: Best practices for increasing the rigor of math instruction while applying teaching practices that improve student math performance.
