The Instructional Core Framework was developed by the NCCS Curriculum Team in conjunction with the NCCS Curriculum Council after a year of research, reading, and lengthy discussions about what all good teachers should know about pedagogy. If you are new to Newton-Conover, you had the opportunity to get a broad overview of the Instructional Core during our New Hire Orientation. During the 2016-17 school year, we engaged in 9 hours of Instructional Core professional development.
If you want to brush up on what we covered, or even review what we have discussed so far this year, simply take advantage of our Instructional Core Canvas Modules. These self-paced modules are complete with self-checking quizzes so that you can test your own knowledge of the Instructional Core.
(You must have an NCCS Canvas account to access our modules.)
If you have questions, contact Dr. Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer, or any member of the Curriculum Council.
