30-day MCNC Conference Countdown: Day 2 – Finding a medium between professional choice and new Common Core instructional shifts in social studies
As Social Studies teachers around the nation move closer to unilateral implementation of the Common Core State Standards, many confront the difficulties of how to both align their instruction to new learning standards and satisfy the needs of students learning specific content area materials. Teachers need to acquire a new and different toolbox in order to meet this goal.
The annual Sumer Professional Development Institute brings together member schools’ staff, principals, college partners for four days to focus on pedagogy and curriculum as well as issues specific to the MCNC Design Principles. This conference is also open to non-member schools and districts interested in adapting the MCNC model.
