Forty-eight states are part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative—now the task of integrating these new standards lies ahead.  In this webinar, participants gain an overview of an innovative learning experience provided by Mapping to the Core LiveBook and LivePlanner, written by Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs and the Curriculum21 team. Mapping to the Core LiveBook and LivePlanner give teachers unprecedented support in mapping Common Core Standards alignment and student learning. Mapping to the Core presents step-by-step theory and instruction that guides teachers through the process of creating a curriculum map aligned to the Common Core Standards, just in time for your summer planning.
