The American Federation of Teachers will be webcasting a conversation on the Common Core State Standards and English Language Learners on November 13, 2012, from 2:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST.
As schools and districts across the country begin implementing the Common Core State Standards, educators and leaders will need the latest information on developments and resources to help general education and specialized teachers of English language learners with Common Core implementation.
The meeting will be webcast live and will feature presentations by the two consortia developing assessments for the Common Core State Standards—Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). Additionally, there will be presentations by Stanford University’s Understanding Language initiative, the Council of Chief State School Officers and Colorín Colorado.
