The GaDOE ELA department is developing a new series of webcasts for teachers and administrators sharing implantation tools for common core. These webcasts are posted on the georgiastandards.org website – ELA professional learning. Each grade level webcast features a teacher describing the instructional practices, performance tasks, and the resources she/he used to implement the common core standards addressed in the lesson. Currently, there are 3 webcast ready for viewing – all at the secondary level. We will be posting other grade levels as they are completed and all grades should be represented by the end of January.
GALILEO/Encyclopedia Britannica Online Webinars
The CCGPS Literacy standards ask content teachers to help students build knowledge through content-rich nonfiction. GALILEO and Encyclopedia Britannica are ideal, free resources for accessing quality and appropriate texts to help students learn about math, science, technology, and career specific concepts.
The Georgia Department of Education is happy to provide a series of free webinars demonstrating how to utilize Encyclopedia Britannica Online through GALILEO for STEM teachers and students. An Encyclopedia Britannica Online professional learning specialist will demonstrate the features and explore how to integrate informational texts for various STEM topics.
In January, professional development specialists from GALILEO will provide a series of free webinars demonstrating how to use GALILEO to meet teacher and school goals for Common Core Georgia Performance Standards.
