Common Core State Standards Cadre
To help your faculty prepare for the full implementation of the Common Core State Standards in 2014-15, the Oklahoma Education Association has assembled a cadre of some of the state’s most accomplished classroom teachers who are ready to provide the professional development needed to meet these new challenges. On this page, you will find a description of the sessions offered plus the associated costs and a list of the cadre members.
THE CCSS SESSIONS & CADRE MEMBERS
The purpose of our Highly Engaging Classroom presentation is to improve student engagement, as this is the key to effective teaching. Student engagement happens when teachers purposefully create an environment that is physically, mentally, emotionally and socially secure and engaging. Using specific strategies will assist teachers in creating that environment, and presenters will model these best practices in this two- or three-hour training.

Project-Based Learning for the CCSS
Project-Based Learning is an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world. PBL teaches skills as well as content, including communication and presentation skills, organization and time management skills, research and inquiry skills, and self-assessment and reflection skills. This workshop will assist you in making Project-Based Learning an integral part of your classroom learning experience.
