Literacy and math proficiency are key to achieving equity and social justice for all our students. But before students can be successful academically, their teachers must be knowledgeable in effective instructional practices, they must have access to high-quality curricula, and systems must be in place to provide personalized interventions that support educational progress.
CORE’s multi-year, job-embedded professional learning programs focus on building instructional competence and confidence, effective implementation of evidence-based English language arts and math curricular materials, and ensuring multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) are in place to personalize instruction and interventions to each student’s needs.
We collaborate with preK-12 teachers and school leaders to:
Professional learning starts with online or in-person personalized training to build a common knowledge base and basic skills among your team. This training gives teachers the information they need to improve instruction, identify struggling students, and provide targeted interventions that prevent students from developing lifelong learning deficits.
Learning the research foundations and effective ELA and math instructional practices is just the start. CORE ensures that what is learned is implemented with fidelity through hands-on on-site or online coaching. CORE experts model instructional practices specific to teachers’ grade levels and curricula and provide mentoring to build teachers’ confidence. CORE also works with school leaders to develop infrastructure that ensures the practices learned are sustained after CORE’s coaching ends.
Professional learning is an ongoing process. CORE understands the importance of providing long-term training. As part of our commitment, we sponsor conferences and workshops so that CORE-trained coaches and school leaders from around the country can continue to build their capacity to lead their teams and ensure sustained academic achievement for all students.
