Top 5 Iowa Core Implementation THINGS TO DO

OK, I wish a "Top 5" was that simple, but to make it manageable, I thought I'd start with a couple of things that districts should be working on during their continued implementation of the Iowa Core.
  • #1  Bring together your District Leadership Team and revisit your Iowa Core Implementation Plan..what does the plan say you're going to do and are you doing it?  If so....celebrate....if not, why not? 
  • #2  Does/how does your plan need to be revised to better meet current Iowa Department of Educations expectations and initiatives?
  • #3  Which outcome(s) of the Iowa Core are you committed to and incorporating into your districts Professional Development Plan?
  • #4  What is your district doing to better understand, implement, differentiate, and extend the learning opportunities of the Iowa Core Standards?
  • #5  Are teaching practices in your districts transforming to better align with the Characteristics of Effective Instruction?
