New Common Core Solution Unveiled at ISTE 2012; Lesson Planet Presents Aligned Resource Search™ To Help Teachers Implement Standards
San Diego, CA (via PRWEB) June 25, 2012 — ISTE Annual Conference and Exposition — Lesson Planet, the leading online curriculum search solution for PreK-12 educators, introduces a unique new feature to help teachers implement the Common Core. Lesson Planet’s Common Core solution with Aligned Resource Search™ supports teachers in understanding, planning for, and implementing the Common Core.
The Aligned Resource Search™ is an optimized Common Core search that takes the discrete skills from unpacked Common Core standards and maps them to a wide variety of teacher-reviewed lesson plans and other open educational resources. A professional development webinar series, included in Lesson Planet’s School Edition offering for schools and districts, supplements this feature to help teachers expand and hone their teaching skills as they prepare for Common Core implementation.
Jim Hurley, Lesson Planet’s CEO & Founder, stated, “We’re very excited to offer teachers a complete solution for understanding and implementing the Common Core. They should feel confident turning to Lesson Planet to help them meet this new challenge.”
The company exhibits at booth #5411 during ISTE 2012 in San Diego, June 25-27. Demonstrations led by Lesson Planet curriculum specialists will include how teachers can use the new Aligned Resource Search™ to quickly find lesson-planning resources aligned to the Common Core.
