Many of you have heard of Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs. She’s a renowned expert on education and curriculum design. When she’s not lecturing at Colombia University, districts all over the country seek her out to consult and assist them in redesigning their curriculum.
The folks at my company have worked with Dr. Jacobs’ curriculum development team, and as a result she has partnered with us to put on a webinar outlining strategies for implementing the Common Core. We ran the webinar yesterday, and I was informed this morning that it is already available for download on our website. I thought I’d let you know about it.
Here’s a the description that Dr. Jacobs’ team provided:
