Common Core in Action II: Exploring Literacy Design Collaborative Tools

New Teacher Center via Coursera


The Common Core State Standards are new and will challenge our students to show evidence of learning in new ways.  Instructional shifts are required, especially for teachers who must now incorporate literacy into content areas. Integrating the literacy standards can be difficult to do well. In this course you will have the support of a community and harness the power of collaboratively exchanging ideas with colleagues, as you explore a variety of Literacy Design Collaborative tools to align curriculum with the Common Core.
Each week you’ll explore one aspect of the Literacy Design Collaborative model, choosing from a variety of resources to differentiate for your own learning. You’ll then participate in a discussion forum to share you insights, questions, and applications with others. 


This course will include exploration of the Template Task, LDC Core Tools, Mini-Tasks, and the Mini-Task Library. Participants will differentiate for their own learning by considering the application of one of these aspects of the LDC model.

Requirements for course completion include:

·      Pre and post course surveys

·      12 discussion forum posts

·      End of the course plan for application

·      Assessment of 2-3 of your peer’s plans (rubrics are provided)
