IRA’s first CCSS webinar gave you an opportunity to discuss the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with one of the leaders in the field, Tim Shanahan, who participated on the team that drafted the CCSS and has been an outspoken voice as states begin implementing CCSS in schools.
In this hour-long interactive webinar, Tim asked attendees to:
- Consider the theoretical differences between the CCSS and most current educational standards
- Identify the most important underlying ideas of the CCSS
- Explore the most challenging changes that educators will need to make in order to meet the new demands of CCSS
