Align Assess Achieve About CCSC
WEA has 4 members (Shelly Milne – Cashmere EA, Cara Haney – Kent EA, Dan Alderson – Lake Stevens EA, and Jennie Beltramini – Anacortes EA) serving on WEA’s Common Core Work Group who have extensive training about CCSS, including familiarity with resources and materials created by the non-profit Student Achievement Partners (SAP). SAP is partnered with NEA and AFT to develop high-quality, free professional development resources: http://www.achievethecore.org/
New CCSS Tools from NEA and BetterLesson
The National Education Association (NEA) and BetterLesson launched a new web site:
http://cc.betterlesson.com/mtp The site, where teachers share what works in the classroom, features more than 3,000 classroom-ready lessons that are easily accessible and can be integrated into any curriculum. This new BetterLesson product was built entirely for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and features the lessons of 130+ Master Teachers (MTs), who represent every K-12 grade level for math and English Language Arts & Literacy. This is one of several long-term partnerships NEA has pursued to support its members’ professional development and leadership in the teaching practice; members have been recruited around the country to participate and develop comprehensive materials along with these partner organizations.
