Leading Professional Development Discussions that Leverage the Common Core

January 28 – March 21, 2014

Host site: Boise State University Writing Project

Overview

In this 8-week Online Learning Experience (OLE), or MOOC, participants will discuss the composing and teaching of the featured text type, as well as their own ideas, writing, and reflections. The leadership group will consider how to leverage informational texts and the Common Core for professional and site development. Participants may engage with more than one chat and each group will be led by a member of BSWP’s Core Implementation Team. This OLE will use the book Get It Done! , by Wilhelm, Smith, and Fredricksen (Heinemann).
