Classroom Video Modules

Our library of Common Core Classroom Video Modules features educators in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Poughkeepsie, NY who are implementing the new standards with their English language learners. The videos, which highlight specific standards being met as well as research-based ELL strategies, can be used for self-paced professional development for individual teachers or professional learning groups.

You can also find additional resources from the Common Core in Albuquerque Project and the Common Core in Poughkeepsie Project, including lesson plans and video interviews with the featured teachers, district leaders, and experts.
