edcamp Common Core

A few months ago, as we were planning our PD for the summer at Kean, I realized that I really wanted to provide an event at the SGEI this summer that was of no cost to educators. The theme that we chose for this edcamp is the Common Core Standards.  Educators are encouraged to gather at this event to discuss the following topics:

  • What are districts doing to implement the Common Core?
  • What am I expected to know about the Common Core Standards for the grade level(s) and content area I teach to prepare my students for the 2014?
  • What am I expected to know as a classroom teacher?
  • Just how different are the Common Core from previous state standards?
  • What kinds of professional development are available to assist with implementing the Common Core?

is proud to present this FREE event for NY and NJ educators. 
This “UNCONFERENCE” will be held at the STEM Building 
at Kean University on August 9, 2012 from 8am – 4pm.

We are looking for educators that have been implementing the standards in the classrooms/schools/districts to join us that day and facilitate conversations at the roundtables. Please contact me directly if you are interested in helping make this event a success!

    I feel like this Post provides a oppurtunity for educators to get together for free and talk about some topics. They wanted to dicuss the Common Core. I like the issues yall are presenting in this post and I would enjoy learning more about the Common Core.

      I am a proud NJ educator. I have attended Edcamp this summer and found tremendous value in empowering all professionals through identifying their personnel professional knowledge and their value added by creating and helping to design the direction of the Ed camp. Kudos Lisa!

  2. Thank you for the Common Core Standards link. I haven’t had any experience in the classroom teaching under these standards, and I’m wondering how it’s going to affect my drive to teach because I’ve been hearing a lot of negative things about it in the news and online. I’m looking forward to getting back into the classroom and seeing what all the fuss is about! I’ll wait to form my opinion about Common Core until that time.
