SREB Readiness Courses Training at the Summer ConferenceJuly 13-17, 2015
An institute on teacher development for the SREB Readiness Courses. Powerful, free courses to teach students the skills they need to learn and think independently after high school, as they transition to college and careers.
SREB Readiness Courses are designed for high school students who, by their junior year, score slightly below the college readiness level on state or national tests.
The courses are designed for highly effective teachers, with some experience teaching the target group of students, who are open to new teaching styles and delivery models.
Which standards and tools?
The courses are grounded in the Common Core College and Career Readiness anchor standards in literacy and math, utilizing hybrid in-class and online approaches including Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and Math Design Collaborative (MDC) strategies to help students reach deeper learning.
