Attend ANet Common Core Boot Camp this summer!

ANet Common Core Boot Camp will provide a “common sense” approach to the Common Core State Standards. You’ll learn about not only the shifts and the standards, but also practical ways to apply this learning to your planning with English Language Arts or math curricula—all from a respected nonprofit with deep experience in over 1,000 schools.

 

It’s a huge challenge to integrate the Common Core while juggling all your current responsibilities—no matter how smart and dedicated you are. 

What’s the solution? You need to take a solid chunk of time to study and plan from the Standards with fellow educators who’ve developed deep expertise with them—that’s us on the ANet team—and your colleagues from around Michigan. We’ve found that learning and working together this way is more powerful and more enjoyable than trying to do it alone or in isolated clusters.

A common sense approach to the Common Core

The Common Core calls for a deeper approach to ELA and math instruction to foster student understanding and higher level thinking. This means shifts in our teaching and planning that must be grounded in a solid understanding of the Standards. 

Our Boot Camp is practical and relevant, with separate tracks for ELA and math. With a group of your peers from around Michigan, we’ll dig deeply into the Standards—and your curriculum—until they make perfect sense to you.

  • You’ll understand not just the jargon (let’s be honest, there’s plenty of that!), but also the logic and elegant structure behind the Standards.
  • You’ll know how to implement them in your classroom or school. And you’ll want to—not just because it’s required, but because you’ll see how it will help you meet your students’ needs.
  • We’ll help you jump-start your planning for next year. Imagine feeling confident and excited to try new things on the first day of school!

PD that's engaging, inspiring, empowering, actionable

Our goal is to provide a supportive, invigorating, fun (Yes, fun! We love this stuff!) professional development experience that is, above all, empowering.

At ANet, we’re all about supporting educators. We’re a nonprofit organization that shares your values—we want to make sure every student gets a great education and opportunities in life. Common Core-aligned instruction can help make that vision a reality.

We hope you’ll join us this summer!
