Fulfilling the Promise of the Common Core with the Core Six
The Common Core State Standards represent a new promise in education—the promise to prepare all of our students for
college, careers, and the challenges of the 21st Century. In this interactive one-day workshop, participants will identify
key challenges in fulfilling the promise of the Common Core. Dr. Harvey Silver will then introduce participants to the
“Core Six”: six easy-to-use, research-based strategies that teachers at any grade level can use to develop their students’
core thinking, literacy, and communication skills. After, participants will explore two Core Six strategies in depth—
Reading for Meaning and Compare & Contrast.
In this interactive workshop, participants will…
• Identify the key challenges in fulfilling the promise of the Common Core State Standards for all students
• Learn how to see the Common Core as a “tapestry” of interwoven skills
• Develop a working knowledge of the “Core Six”—the six most important
instructional strategies for developing key Common Core skills
• Learn a Core Six literacy and analytical thinking strategy in greater depth
(Reading for Meaning)
• Learn a Core Six critical and comparative thinking strategy in greater
depth (Compare & Contrast)
