Seeing the Intersections: The National Board and LDC

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.

This month’s product newsletter is dedicated to LDC products in action and there is no better place to aim this spotlight than Mississippi. Led by Superintendent Dr. Sue Townsend, Rankin County School District (RCSD) is an ideal model for this type of profile for a number of reasons. The district has been hard at work implementing what started as a three school initiative, transforming it into a district-wide effort.
