Seeing the Intersections: The National Board and LDC

May 31, 2017

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) have teamed up to build a new course for all LDC CoreTools users to “Differentiate for All Students.” This is a natural collaboration due to the symbiotic relationship that exists between quality teaching and the LDC tools and resources. The National Board’s 5 Core Propositions are the qualities and characteristics of practice that highly effective educators share. LDC provides a system that supports teachers in practicing these qualities in our work in concrete ways. The LDC tools and resources provide a practical way to enact the 5 Core Propositions. This course, along with the larger LDC suite of courses, provides a bridge between the 5 Core Propositions and a teacher's daily life.
