I have been fortunate to have the experience of participating in the TAH grant. It is truly rewarding to meet with colleagues…
- Lisa Pierce


Spend four days with AIHE's nationally renowned and published professional development staff. Our Common Core Learning Institute will unlock the Common Core Standards for Reading, Writing and Informational text. Each day will consist of participant-centered activities aligned to substantive historical content. Participants will spend a day in Historic Philadelphia walking in the footsteps of the founders to experience the power of site based learning as a tool for bringing "learning beyond the textbook" to their students. The institute will also have a strong focus on participants developing a plan to become district-wide leaders with an individualized roadmap for implementing the standards.

This 4-day summer workshop will be held Monday - Thursday, July 22-25, 2013 on the campus of Delsea Regional High School in nearby Franklinville, NJ. Accommodations will be provided a short drive from the school.

  • Activities and materials aligned with the Common Core Standards with a keen eye toward the upcoming assessments
  • Sessions designed to de-mystify the Common Core Standards and their focus on decoding informational texts.
  • Content-rich pedagogy designed to engage student interest and increase student achievement
  • Innovative teaching strategies that encourage students to become active learners through historical investigations
  • Ready-to-use classroom activities and graphic organizers to unlock student learning

Benefits of attending THIS workshop:
  • Prepare your Social Studies Teachers and Language Arts teachers for the implementation of the Common Core Standards with activities and methods designed by the Institute to successfully teach and assess the content and skills needed
  • Engage in Turnkey replication throughout your district by developing a plan that specifically meets the needs of your school and district
  • Learn cutting edge strategies for teaching U.S. history and social studies to elementary, middle and high school students
  • Study rich, historical content infused in each strategy that spans various history and social studies courses
  • Discover activities that truly engage the students and allow them to take ownership of their learning and the content
