Conferences let teachers learn from peers on Common Core

Four daylong conferences this August will offer teachers a chance to hear from fellow Maine teachers about:

  • reasoning and higher-order thinking skills;
  • helping students to improve their writing;
  • improving their own writing; and
  • effective math instruction based on the Common Core State Standards.

The conferences, called “Making Strides on the Common Core in Thinking, Writing and Math,” are organized by the Portland non-profit organization Navigating the Real World and co-sponsored by the University of Southern Maine.

All conferences take place at the Augusta Civic Center. Teachers can sign up for one session or multiple sessions.

More information about the conferences and online registration are available on the Navigating the Real World website.
