This workshop will focus on strategies to work with school staffs to dig deeper into the Common Core state standards. Participants will engage in professional learning experiences that highlight if teachers are really teaching the core. Strategies for working in both reading and math will be shared along with tools to help administrators provide feedback to teachers on fidelity of implementation of the new KY Core standards. Unit planning in mathematics and language arts will be discussed along with common assessment ideas.

Student Growth Goals (SGGs) are an integral part of Kentucky's Professional Growth and Effectiveness System.  In order for SGGs to have true impact on student learning, administrators must help teachers move beyond mere compliance by engaging them in meaningful conversations around rigor and data. In this session, participants will:

  • receive an overview of the structure and rigor requirements of SGGs,
  • engage in scenarios around high-quality SGG development and growth monitoring, and
  • gain strategies for leading professional conversations to ensure rigorous SGGs.

This session is primarily geared toward school and district administrators responsible for guiding and supporting teachers through the Student Growth Goal process, but would also be beneficial for teacher leaders and classroom teachers.
