Common Core State Standards Workshops

The Latino Policy Forum has recently developed Common Core workshops in collaboration with the National Council of La Raza and the Erikson Institute to inform and equip Latino and immigrant parents with accessible, relevant, and useful information and resources on the Common Core State Standards. In the 2014-2015 school year, the Forum reached more than 1,600 parents through the primarily Spanish-language workshops and materials. For the 2015-2016 school year, the Forum is on schedule to train more than 1200 parents. Workshop descriptions are below and materials can be found here.
Everything you want to know about the Common Core State Standards and are afraid to ask:
The Common Core State Standards present both opportunities and challenges for today’s diverse student body. This workshop is for parents to help them understand their roles and responsibilities with respect to the new standards. Workshop organizers aim to collect participant feedback to shape future parent-focused workshops
Helping Your Child with the New Common Core Math: A Focus on PK to 3rd Grade:
This workshop explores how math instruction and learning is changing as schools align their curriculum to the new Common Core State Standards. Parents will be able to gain a better understanding for why such changes are being made and how they might help their children adapt. The workshop also provides ideas for ways parents can build mathematical understanding at home, which includes some on-line resources and culturally relevant games.
