Instructional Core Support Document – A Work In Progress

As we move into second semester, we are concluding our Instructional Core sessions on Introduction to Content and moving into the Differentiated Pathway.  The next several months, we will explore how to address the needs of students who have mastered content or who have demonstrated a strong understanding of content prior to instruction.

As you plan lessons or look for some fresh ideas, don’t forget about our Instructional Core Support Document.  It is a work in progress, and we are building on the content in that document each month as we introduce new topics to you.

If you have suggestions for content, don’t hesitate to contact a member of the NCCS Curriculum Team or Curriculum Council.
