Creating a Common Core Learning Environment in After SchoolPresenter: Ken Anthony, Director of Professional Development CT After School NetworkWhat can Common Core Standards do to transform your programs and strengthen your partnerships? Participants will learn how to identify the Common Core and "Habits of Mind" in what they are already doing in their programs. Activity choices, the role of after school in the implementation of the common core standards, the importance of staff culture and climate, relevant research, and partnerships with school districts in adapting the Common Core are the cornerstones of this engaging workshop for directors, site coordinators, and front line staff. As the standards are implemented nationally in 46 states, and policymakers and funders look for innovative models in after school, alignment with the learning day and common core is an opportunity to showcase the impact programs have on children. This workshop provides tools to start these conversations and make your program have a larger impact on the children, families, and communities that are served.
