The Core Task Project is a professional learning model that challenges assumptions and addresses the “instructional shifts.” Further, it answers the question, “What does it mean to do the Core?” Inquiry based and developed by teachers, the CTP uses Close Reading Exemplars, developed by Student Achievement Partners, as a means to refine classroom instruction so that is matched to the CCSS.

 

The CTP includes voices from the CCSSO, the NGA, and the standards authors through print material, video content, and podcasts. It draws educators’ attention the PARCC Content Framework and the SBAC Claims. In doing so, teachers and governance have a stronger sense of what needs to shift in order to prepare students for College and Career Readiness.

All the materials have been well vetted in Nevada’s 2nd largest school district—Washoe County.
