The C3 Cadre is an intensive 1-year professional development experience, designed to provide participants with deep knowledge and experience in implementing the California Standards with high levels of quality and rigor. Participants will develop units of instruction and practice instructional strategies as they develop expertise and skill. Develop internal capacity to support standards implementation by creating a team of experts within your school or district.
How we design and deliver instruction is the key to helping to ensure that ALL students have an equitable opportunity to become college, career and citizenship ready. the C3 Cadre is an intensive, hands-on approach to providing teachers, instructional coaches and administrators with the skills they need to design and deliver effective instruction. Participants begin by examining how instruction can be designed to eliminate barriers to learning. Participants will examine each phase of the instructional process through the lens of MTSS and the Universal Design for Learning.
Training will go into depth on various aspects of CA Standards implementation and instructional design. C3 Cadre members will be formed into cadres or networks of job-alike groups to gain a deep understanding of the standards and how they can become embedded in instructional practice in classrooms. Mechanisms for sharing ideas and experiences, as well as for collaborative problem-solving, will be integral to helping cadre members become prepared to deliver assistance to others in the district or building.
- The goal is to build internal capacity in schools and districts by creating in-house expertise to model, deliver and monitor successful implementation of the standards.
- The project will span one year with six face-to-face sessions and digital content between sessions.
- Sessions will be hands-on and interactive. Participants will be asked to reflect on, build and share their understanding of the standards and its instructional shifts.
- Networking systems among participants will be built in order to share work and increase the quality and quantity of work produced. Webinars and cohorts will support the work between sessions.
