Learn More About LDC CoreTools!

LDC CoreTools is a guided online experience that supports a teacher in planning, creating, and thinking through each of the four LDC module sections. With LDC CoreTools you can:

  • Work in a Google Docs-like planning and authoring environment that guides you to create College and Career Readiness Standards-aligned curricula including LDC modules and mini-tasks
  • Share your work and collaborate in real time with colleagues within your school or across the country
  • Review teacher videos, helping you to create engaging CCRS-aligned curricula for your students
  • Access model banks of modules identified as Exemplary and Good to Go by the jurying processes created by the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity
  • Jury your own and other colleagues’ modules using the LDC CoreTools online jurying tool
  • Access teacher-created literacy mini-tasks for students, vetted by experts at UC-Berkeley and supported by our partner, New Visions for Public Schools.

LDC CoreTools includes embedded Help resources; however, your experience will be more intuitive if you already have a basic understanding of module design and the LDC creation process.
