The Office of Cultural Education will host a two-day conference, Uncommon Approaches to the Common Core, on August 12 and 13, 2014, aimed at school librarians, public librarians, academic librarians, teachers, administrators, and representatives from cultural organizations such as museums, archives, public television, NYS historic sites, performing arts organizations, and public historians.
Participants will develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core Learning Standards and how cultural resources can be utilized in order to effectively support the implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards. The conference will foster collaboration and inquiry, and will include workshops in all subject areas.
