Creating a Virtual Library of Common Core Concepts for Site-Based Professional Development-ELA
Partnered with Dr. Julie Joslin, Ms. Chappell will create engaging curriculum and model instructional practices for North Carolina teachers. The Common Core Standards for English Language Arts will be implemented in the 2012-13 school year, and the curriculum Ms. Chalifoux will create includes a module of materials that an LEA can use for on-site professional development. The project will involve capturing digital video of excellent instructional delivery of challenging concepts and creating a detailed facilitators’ guide to accompany each video. Ms. Chappell will also create a schedule for implementing this training and construct a list of possible follow-up activities and resources. Working closely with her mentor, Kenan Fellow Priscilla Chappell will help transform the way English is taught in North Carolina.
