Implementing the Common Core: Transform Principals into Instructional Leaders

Efrain Mercado

The role of the principal has always been crucial to any school’s success—and now, with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, the principal’s ability to serve as the linchpin to school leaders and faculty is a key leverage point. Yet the evolution of the role to include embodying instructional leadership has been a work in progress. Recommendation #3 from ASCD’s report Fulfilling the Promise of the Common Core State Standards: Moving from Adoption to Implementation to Sustainability states that we must transform principals into instructional leaders to reach the expectations of the Common Core State Standards.

Join ASCD staff member Efrain Mercado as he provides an overview of Recommendation #3. Mercado will be joined by Keith Klein, principal of Harris Intermediate School (Utah), and ASCD Emerging Leader Michael DeCaprio, assistant facilitator for the Race to the Top Network Team at the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex Board of Cooperative Educational Services (New York). Both Klein and DeCaprio will offer their experiences with implementing the Common Core standards and the role of the principal. Audience members will have their questions answered live during the session.

Exceeding the Common Core Speaking Standards: Improving the Oral Communication of All Students

Erik Palmer

All teachers in all subject areas at all grade levels have their students speak in class. Digital tools available today showcase oral language and speaking well is the number one skill employers seek. To respond to these realities, Common Core standards have been created to push us to give more emphasis to what has been an ignored language art.

In this webinar, Erik Palmer offers reasons to increase our emphasis on speaking and gives an overview of the requirements of the Common Core State Standards. Then he introduces a practical, multitrait framework for understanding and teaching the skills involved in all effective oral communication. Proven, successful strategies and activities are explained to enable teachers to update activities they currently use in order to more purposefully and specifically teach students to be well spoken in the classroom and beyond.
