Welcome to the MAISA/REMC Common Core State Standards Professional Development Resources Project.
Included in this website are training tools that any ISD or district
can use to facilitate conversations around the Common Core State
Standards. These tools are intended to help groups or individuals
to familiarize themselves with important points regarding the standards,
and how to begin planning to use the standards.
You will find sets of training materials for English Language Arts,
Mathematics and Content Area Teachers. We are aware of the need to
get some basic tools into the hands of all districts and ISDs around
the state. This collaborative project between MAISA and REMC has made
these resources possible.
Materials are Organized by Content Areas:
English Language Arts
Each content area contains several items that can assist in
facilitating conversations around the Common Core Standards. Each
content area and meeting link contains the following tools:
Sign-in Sheets to verify District Provided Professional Development (DPPD)
PowerPoint presentation with presenter notes
Coming soon: Voice Over of the PowerPoint
Materials and resource aids to enhance discussion
Meeting Protocols described in detail for facilitating
Additional resources to aid further conversations in each topic
You will find additional resources behind the following tabs:
Smarter Balanced Assessment
Feel free to use the resources that best suit your needs.
Reason for the Project
Based on two
surveys launched statewide in 2012 and 2013, ISD leaders, district
leaders and classroom teachers indicated an overwhelming need for
training materials of what MAISA identified as “leveled trainings” for
the Common Core roll out and implementation.
Purpose: These training
materials are to be used by any district PLC, staff meetings, or ISD
gatherings with the intent of getting all districts in the state to the
same level of understanding regarding the Common Core State Standards.
Members: A small team of experts
from around the state participated in this project. A special
thanks goes out to this team and to their organizations for their
contributions to this project.
