As states implement Common Core State Standards for English language arts and mathematics, educators face substantial challenges adapting their instruction to match the new framework. The standards have been approved in 45 states and the District of Columbia, and many districts are planning to implement strategies in the upcoming school year that migrate instruction, curriculum and assessment to the new standards. To help educators prepare for upcoming changes, PBS TeacherLine has aligned its online professional development courses with Common Core State Standards.

The alignment means that PBS TeacherLine reading/language arts and mathematics courses provide professional development training and resources that help teachers develop lessons and deliver instruction based on Common Core State Standards. Teachers can better gauge student progress in mastering the standards and modify instruction to address weaknesses and accelerate achievement.

PBS TeacherLine offers more than 80 graduate-level courses in reading/language arts, mathematics, science, STEM, instructional strategies, and technology integration. In response to the heightened importance placed on climate change and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, PBS TeacherLine worked with NASA to create a series of full online courses and shorter modules that help educators integrate digital media resources into classroom instruction to capture students’ interest and reinforce important academic concepts.
