University of Chicago Teacher Workshop
The Common Core: Getting There Globally
A professional development workshop designed to provide resources for globally-minded educators.
Monday, May 14
University of Chicago
Pick Hall, Room 105
5828 South University Avenue
Chicago IL, 60637
The Common Core’s skill-based standards provide ample opportunity – and encouragement – for educators to engage with global content and cultures. What they don’t offer is practical ideas about how to do so. In this workshop led by Primary Source, we will explore the range of global literary and informational texts and learn about ways to find such texts for different grade levels and pair or cluster them to support different Common Core skills. Activity ideas for various grade levels will be featured in breakout sessions, and participants will leave with specific ideas and resources for addressing the Common Core reading and writing standards while enhancing students’ global knowledge and engagement.
Designed for K-12 teachers and administrators of the humanities subjects.
