Training Toolbox

There are a multitude of resources available for working with groups of teachers in gaining a deeper understanding of CCGPS. Several of these resources are ones we have used in our trainings. This "toolbox" will include some of the resources we have used and feel are of value; however, this is not an exhaustive list. As we develop, or edit, our own training materials, we will continue to post them here. You will also find a "comment" box for your suggestions or questions. For grade level units and teacher resources, refer to the grade level pages (First Grade ELA, Second Grade ELA, etc). Thank you!
