Teaching for creativity in the Common Core classroom

How can creativity and innovation enhance your Common Core strategy? Join Ron Beghetto of the University of Connecticut for a discussion of strategies you can use tomorrow in your school.

About the session

How can creativity, something often called uncommon and original, be combined with the CCS, something that is common and convergent? Consequently, many teachers may find themselves at a crossroads — feeling they must choose between nurturing student creativity or conforming to common standards. This webinar is about strategies for reconciling these two competing priorities.
