Transcript of Collaboration & the Common Core: Strategies From the Classroom

In Spring 2013, the Center for Teaching Quality hosted a series of three webinars on the Common Core State Standards.

The topic at hand? How do we bring the standards to life in our classrooms, schools, districts, and beyond?
What follows are the key themes from each discussion along with video highlights from the series' guest experts.
