EdWeek Webinars: Implementing the ELA Common Standards

Those of you in the English/language arts swatch of the edu-verse might be interested in a couple of webinars we're hosting next week.

As my colleague Anthony Rebora notes over at Teaching Now, the first one is on Tuesday, May 1, at 2 p.m. EST. I'm hosting that one; it features two literacy experts from adjoining school districts in Northern Kentucky, who are putting the Literacy Design Collaborative tools into practice. The story I wrote about my visit to Kentucky to observe that work is online if you'd like to read it before the webinar. It was part of our special report on implementing the common standards, which just came out this week.

The second webinar is Thursday, May 3, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time, features the 2010 National Teacher of the Year, Sarah Brown Wessling, discussing the new standards. I've heard her speak, written about her approach to teaching the new standards, and I know that she is an interesting and dynamic speaker.
