In response to the Ohio Department of Education's implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, the MARW program is offering a special summer two week course to help English Language Arts teachers in K-12 implement these new standards in the classroom.
In the course, ELA teachers can adopt materials they currently use to meet the standards as well as develop new assignments in a community of other ELA teachers.

As a special discount to teachers, all materials and textbooks for the course are FREE.

You'll also get to know the Common Core standards better and really look at them to figure out what they mean. The course will be a great community of practicing English teachers in the area and a space to exchange materials and samples in preparation for the next academic year.
