The Common Core State Standards: Why They Matter

Event Flyer

Presented by:

Mike Castiglione and Lindsay DeVeny, Specialized Programs in Urban Education

Get to know your audience! What impact will Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have on entering undergraduate students?

Come to the CTE November 5th to receive information on what implications the CCSS will have on the incoming LMU undergraduate students and how CCSS will affect higher education. The session will focus on what the CCSS actually are and why CCSS bring a radical change to how K-12 educators have traditionally delivered classroom instruction. Learn about the 6 main shifts CCSS bring to both English Language Arts and Math, and the impact across all core subject areas. The session features an introduction to Webb's depths of knowledge as an assessment tool that measures cognitive demand (Webb, 1997). You will also have an opportunity to interact with some technology based sample questions.

This presentation is part of Beth Brewer’s Faculty Associate Project, “Rethinking the Student Learning Experience”.

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to or x85866.
