ETLO’s CCSS online courses focus on content, pedagogy and assessment, providing teachers with the flexible, engaging opportunities they need to implement the CCSS in their classrooms. ETLO courses are project and classroom based and challenge participants to understand how teaching, learning and assessment shift when aligned to the CCSS. Teachers will be able to explore new strategies and try them out in their classrooms. The project-based approach enables participants to create their classroom lessons aligned to the CCSS and implement these lessons in their classrooms. Facilitated courses are developed in a learning community model, where teachers can participate in reflective discussions about content and implementation of the CCSS with other educators and a trained facilitator.
