Content Area Smarter Balanced Professional Development Resources
This page is intended to provide school site teams with resources to design department-specific professional development.
It is essential for all content-area teachers to work in department teams to interpret the Smarter Balanced assessment results. Although the Smarter Balanced assessment concentrate on English Language Arts and Mathematics, History/Social Studies and Science departments should also analyze those results in the context of their own subject areas, particularly with respect to disciplinary literacy. The links below (more to be added soon!) will direct you to resources that may be used in department meetings.
