Course Syllabus

The Common Core has high demands for teachers and students. This course will provide professional development for all teachers K-12, general and special education as well as special area teachers, by using self-reflection along with today’s educational research to enhance the questions that we ask our students. By asking higher level questions we can demand higher level thinking, and raise the bar so that each student can meet the growing expectations of the Common Core State Standards.
