Critical Supports for Secondary Educators in Common Core State Standard Implementation
Ruchti, Wendy P.; Jenkins, Susan J.; Agamba, Joachim
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v86 n6 p246-254 2013
Teacher professional development (PD) is a complex, ongoing challenge as educational systems attempt to deliver excellent programming in pursuit of increased student achievement (Opfer and Pedder 2011). This article examines Idaho Total Instructional Alignment (TIA), a model for teacher PD that is currently being utilized in secondary schools throughout the state of Idaho. The implications of this model for effective guidance and support with implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), as well as the factors that indicate readiness of secondary teachers for implementation of the CCSS, are explored.
