Common Core
  • Presenter Fran Huntoon coach for Waits River

  • Facilitator Karen Laba
  • Purpose To share ideas for defining a coachs
    role in common core transition

The Coachs Role
  • Responsibilities
  • History, Relationship

Focus Question
  • I wonder. . . . what can I do as a school
    improvement coach to help this leadership team
    work towards a systemic approach to the
    implementation of the CCSS especially for
    elementary teachers responsible for multiple
    content areas?

Clarifying and/ or Probing Questions
  • Clarifying questions are for the person asking
    them. They ask the presenter who, what, where,
    when, and how.
  • Probing questions are for the person answering
    them. They ask the presenter why (among other
    things), and are open-ended.
  • Examples
  • -- what is the recent history of teacher
    training, professional development at Waits River
  • -- what is the current understanding of the
    demands required for the implementation of the
    Common Core among school leaders?

Discussion of Frans Wondering
  • Discussion Questions
  • 1. What are the key elements of the situation in
    Frans school?
  • 2. What information should she take into account
    when deciding how to move forward?
  • 3. In your setting, what might be a strategy or
    scenario you might use to help a new school
    leader tackle the Common Core transition?

5. Presenters Reflections
  • What are the ideas Fran has heard that she can
    take back to her school to help design a coherent
    pd plan for the cc transition?

    Core State Standards in order to provide
    effective support (or pressure!) to their

Common Core State Standards Essential
