Common Core Webinars with Teachers and Their Lessons

Tuesday’s webinar was incredibly informative. Dressed down and informal, this webinar gave teachers the chance to get the skinny on teaching according to Common Core Standards directly from Barbara Hollenbeck. Hollenbeck is a fourth grade teacher who took Common Core ELA Standards and applied them to her science/biology lesson.

Teachers across the country had the chance to pose these and other questions:
  • How did you select the standards that were referenced in your video?
  • Was this taught during your reading workshop or during a content area block of time?
  • Do you use Responsive Classroom practices in your class or school?
  • Did you find any opposition at first to work in certain groups and how did you help them overcome that?
  • What is the role of a group leader in your lessons?
  • Can you elaborate on a lesson extension?
You can watch the Common Core 360 video of Mrs. Hollenbeck for free on the Weekly Video Blog.

What are you up to next Tuesday at 2:00 PM ET? You might want to consider participating in a webinar with Kimberly Snowball from Kentucky as she guides her students through finding the volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres. Her video is available now for free, and you can register today for her free webinar.

We’ll see you at the webinar!
