Leveraging Expanded Learning Opportunities to Support Common Core Implementation Webinar

On May 6, 2013 at 2 p.m. ET, CCSSO and America’s Promise Alliance will host a webinar exploring ways that Expanded Learning Opportunities, like afterschool and summer school programs, can help students achieve under the Common Core State Standards. The webinar will highlight Wisconsin and New Jersey as they use Expanded Learning Opportunities to help students prepare for the rigor of the Common Core.

Wisconsin Innovation Lab Network-Expanded Learning Opportunity integration team members Jenell Holsted, Ph.D. of University of WI-Green Bay and Alison Wineberg, State Coordinator of the 21 st Century Community Learning Center at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, will discuss the recent CCSSO Innovation Lab publication “Making the Connection: Next Generation Learning and Expanded Learning Opportunities”. This brief highlights six afterschool programs across Wisconsin that are exemplary in developing innovative ways of connecting with school day learning and supporting Common Core implementation.

Additionally, Sarah Cruz, Director of Expanded Learning Opportunities at the Statewide Network for New Jersey’s Afterschool Communities, will share the work of the Supporting Student Success project—a statewide pilot of afterschool provider training on aligning programming to the Common Core State Standards.

This webinar will provide case studies, best practices, and lessons learned from states working to align Expanded Learning Opportunities to Common Core Implementation.
