“Effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards may be the greatest challenge that the U.S. has faced in K-12 education. Millions of teachers need to make a profound shift in teaching practice to make CCSS reform successful and to improve student outcomes...For the U.S. to deliver on the promise of the Common Core to prepare students for a competitive global environment, it is imperative that districts and states deeply develop our leaders and teachers in making the transition to teaching to the CCSS.” - Alvin Crawford, CEO
Our courses feature expert commentary, grade-specific classroom demonstrations, and practical application activities for immediate implementation.
At KDS, we take pride in offering school districts a blended model of on-site coaching along with a variety of engaging online media assets. Ongoing PD—paired with continuous support, observation and feedback as teachers implement the standards—will bring about a change in practice.
Our courses are grounded in effective teacher practice and include:
Nine additional courses on diverse learners, ELLs, assessment, literacy, curriculum, and collaborative planning
