Professional Development Day

On August, 15, 2013, the University of Dayton Center for Catholic Education hosted a Professional Development Day for teachers and principals from local Catholic schools. The purpose of this day was to help teachers transition to the new Archdiocese of Cincinnati Common Core Reading and Language Arts Standards. 

The presentation and work groups were facilitated by Dr. Mary Kate Sableski and Dr. Jackie Arnold. This session gave the fundamental information for Common Core Standards adapted by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and will be continued in a series of workshops during the school year for Literacy Leaders from each participating school.  These Leaders will bring the information and experiences back to their schools to fuel their work towards adopting these new standards.
