Such a great conference and so many simultaneous sessions that I wanted to see. The powerpoints here have helped me get sneak peaks at the ones I did not get to.
Dennis, this looks awesome and leaves me a bit breathless, as I realize how much has to happen in my small area of education before(...rather) as we implement. I am reading between the lines, since I was not at your session. But the comparison of the 6th grade level CST to CCSS and examples of Smarter Balance are a good way to even out the anxiety!
Throughout the conference, I kept thinking INSTRUCTION, INSTRUCTION! That will be where the rubber meets the road and we must make sure that INSTRUCTION is 21st century!
With gratitude that you have shared your knowledge!
