by Insight Education Group
Insight offers several professional development/training sessions geared towards helping teachers adjust to the Common Core State Standards, including a 50 hour online course that starts at $279.
The online course focuses on identifying key instructional practices that lead to student success with the new standards. The content is based upon Insight’s researched-based Core Framework that consists of five principles:
- Know the discipline well
- Prioritize evidence over opinion
- Grow and improve students’ knowledge base
- Assess progress towards mastery
- Promote intellectual risk taking and persistence
Throughout the course, teachers will engage in readings and videos of core practices in action in the context of actual lessons in a classroom. They are prompted to answer embedded assessments throughout these videos to ensure that teachers are able to match the correct instructional practices to certain scenarios. They take away an application toolkit with practical resources that are tied to all of the core practices.
Insight’s 50 hour online course is available through a web-browser, and their three and five session training programs are done in person.
Access to the full online course begins at $279, and there are additional options including course credit.
