Registration for the Common Core Academy is NOW open to any educator in Utah.
The design of the secondary Common Core Academy can be used across content areas because the standards are mapped backwards from the Career and College Ready Anchor Standards.
You can view the design, resources, and participant expectations at the Common Core Academy website:
Common Core Academy 2011
We have included ALL standards in the Common Core spiral that each participant will receive which includes LITERACY in English, Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.
As a result of low enrollment in the secondary we are opening it up for any educator who teaches that grade level no matter what subject.
We want to fill each session with 30 educators and do not want to cancel any sessions!! We will cancel grade level sessions with enrollment less than 12 in grades 6-12.
Please let colleagues know that we are opening registration and anyone can enroll by going to On Track. Instructions for registering are below.
Beginning May 17, 2011
