Transitioning to the New English Core Standards This past June, The State of Ohio adopted new teaching standards for English Language Arts. The new standards, called “Common Core,” come from a collaborative effort of 48 states to create true national standards. This workshop will examine these new standards to help teachers and administrators understand how the Common Core Standards differ from the standards they are replacing and to discuss the best approaches for teaching these standards to students. Leading this workshop is Don Dudding, who brings both expertise from a Ph.D in English in Composition and Rhetoric and experience from more than a quarter of a century teaching in a public high school in Southeast Ohio. As typical of workshops hosted by Ohio University Appalachian Writing Project, participants can expect to learn and share from each other their “best practices” in teaching literacy skills that will help all of our students succeed in the 21st century.
