Tools Aligned to State and Common Core Standards
1. Instructional Strategies

The first tool answers the question, "What ARE the most effective research-based instructional strategies aligned to my state's Grade Level Standards and the Common Core Standards?" Teachers are provided DUAL access to these instructional strategies in rank order of their power to impact student achievement for both State and Common Core Standards. By clicking on the strategy name, more information is provided on each strategy:

  • Rank
  • Description/Definition
  • What the Strategy will enable students to do with that standard
  • The role of the teacher
  • The connections to brain research and multiple intelligences
  • The connections to systems of thinking, or brain processor
2. Professional Development

The second tool provides unlimited access to 46 Professional Development Courses that are aligned to the standards. These online courses deliver just-in-time learning for teachers whenever and as often as they want or need it.

Recently viewed courses will appear on their Virtual Desktop so they can re-enter them at any time. It will re-open to the place that they left off the last time they entered.

Independently completed, teachers can see videos of expert teachers demonstrating lesson parts, and they can learn the material in short segments by going in and out of the course as their time is available. Courses are available on the highest yield instructional strategies for the standards in Language Arts and Mathematics, as well as the Professional Teaching Standards essential to all teaching.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of the state standards have 3 – 5 classes available for the top five ranked strategies so teachers have many powerful strategies from which to choose to learn about!!!

Additionally, there are 10 courses on the Professional Teaching Standards which are essential to all teaching.

Teachers can access all 46 classes from the Course Catalog on their Virtual Desktop – a value of $4600 per teacher in professional development alone!

4. Parent Activities

The fourth tool provides effective and easy to use Parent Activities for each grade level standard in kindergarten to 8th grade - in English or Spanish - that will engage parents in their child's learning in support of classroom instruction.
