Granville County Teachers Advance Curriculum Design Work
A group of nearly 50 teacher leaders from grades K -12 across the school district have been working hard this summer to prepare for BIG changes in what children are being expected to learn and be able to do in the coming years. The Common Core State Standards and the NC Essential Standards set out new expectations for teaching and learning in public schools.
In order to prepare for these changes, these select teachers have been working in teams to create curriculum documents for next year's subjects and courses. These documents provide a detailed road map of what should be taught, when it should be taught, how student learning will be measured, and in some cases how specific concepts and topics should be presented to students.
On Monday, June 18, our teachers joined a larger group of educators from across the northeast region of N.C. to learn more about how to create these important documents. The Central Carolina Regional Educational Service Alliance (CCRESA) sponsored the event. Tom Hierck, a consultant from a national educational research organization, the Center for Leadership and Learning, provided training and led the teachers and administrators in their important task. Many thanks to the County and Board of Commissioners for allowing this important event to be held at the newly rennovated Granville Expo and Convention Center on Hwy 15 South in Oxford.
