College- and Career-Readiness Standards Networking Conference
Opryland Resort and Convention Center
July 14-16, 2014
The College-and Career-Readiness Standards Networking Conference focuses on bringing proven literacy and math teaching and learning strategies into classrooms.
These strategies are part of the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) frameworks, and they help students reach the deep learning necessary to master college- and career-readiness standards. Teacher, school, district and state leader teams currently engaged or simply interested in using these strategies to advance students’ grade-level mastery of literacy and math skills across content areas are encouraged to attend.
LDC and MDC give teachers a way to build lessons that engage students to read, think about and write about challenging texts -- in all disciplines. In math, students learn the why as well as the how by developing their math reasoning and problem solving skills. Students struggle productively and learn more -- in essence, teaching is shifted so that students take ownership of their learning and perform at higher levels.
You will benefit from a variety of session types that are scaled to meet beginner, experienced and veteran needs. Most importantly, the conference will provide you with the opportunity to collaborate and learn from other practitioners and leaders.
Go here to download session handouts. Handouts will continue to be uploaded after the conference is over. They will be available to participants until the end of September.
