This course will guide teachers through the process of aligning their curricula to their content standards and the learning expectations of their particular grade level. Teachers will learn how read their standards documents, how to identify learning expectations not currently addressed in their curriculum, and adjust lesson plans to incorporate them. The importance of the content standards and learning expectations in the world of competency and performance based assessments will be addressed. You will work with a standard and align your existing curriculum to address the learning expectations of that standard in your lessons. You will use the Backward Design Process to set new learning goals and create or modify curriculum. This course is meant to be a step in the ongoing process teachers use to align the curricula and teaching to performance based standards.

The IntelĀ® Teach Elements: Collaboration in the Digital Classroom is an interactive e-learning experience that offers an in-depth look at collaboration with a focus on online collaborative tools. In this course, teachers will see how collaboration helps students develop 21st century thinking skills, deepen content understanding, and prepare them for the global world. Teachers will learn how to plan and manage collaboration activities that integrate online collaborative tools which are increasingly part of our globally connected workplaces. Online participants will follow two teachers as they implement collaborative experiences in their classrooms. The course offers opportunities to apply the collaboration concepts with action planning exercises. Direct connections to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are provided throughout the course and can be connected within the final project as appropriate.

This course is designed to inform both regular and special education teachers about ways in which to invite and sustain parent involvement in your schools and programs.

Throughout the course you will explore a variety or resources and strategies to build and sustain a positive partnership with the parents of your students. As a final course project, you will design a plan for implementing at least three involvement strategies throughout the school year.
