The 2013 Share Fair, a joint effort between the CFN402 Network and the Center for Professional Education of Teachers, provided an opportunity to celebrate the dedication of network teachers throughout CPET's 2012-13 workshop series. Throughout the year, teachers were supported in unit and lesson planning, as well as aligning their curriculum with the Common Core standards. For the Share Fair, teachers joined together to construct presentations and showcase the many valuable resources available to members of the educational community.
CPET 2012-13 Workshop Series
In collaboration with CFN402, CPET provided a monthly workshop series for New York City teachers within the Network on Unit Planning with the Common Core. Through the workshops, teachers dug deeper into the priority standards of writing arguments, reading information texts, and modeling with mathematics. Teachers also worked with coaches to develop unit plans that were both relevant to their students' interests, essential in their content, and aligned to the standards. The culminating Share Fair on June 6th at Teachers College was a powerful demonstration of their innovation and dedication.
Since New York State adopted the Common Core Learning Standards, our coaches have been working with educators throughout the city to align curriculum with the standards. We've developed many tools to help teachers identify the areas of their curriculum that do not yet meet the Common Core standards, and have developed unit plans for subject areas where commercial curriculum has not yet been developed.
Throughout this process, we've reorganized the standards so that strands for each grade are in one place -- teachers no longer have to hunt through the entire document to find grade level standards for each strand. Below, you can download a copy of the ELA, History, or Science CCLS for grades 6-12.
