Introduction to LDC and ASCD PD Resources

ASCD is proud to work with the Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) and to serve educators through the EduCore™ website, a portal to the LDC modules and other literacy resources. These modules, written by educators working through LDC, are designed to support core content teachers in implementing the Common Core State Standards. A standard format provides clarity and support for teachers as well as the flexibility for them to be creative. Each module focuses on a specific teaching task and includes the skills students need to be successful, a set of mini-tasks to guide instruction, and a scoring guide/rubric to help assess student performance. On the ASCD website, you can find ASCD's library of excellent professional development resources dedicated to literacy and the Common Core. These include a series of PD Online® self-paced courses: Common Core and Literacy Strategies: English Language Arts, Common Core and Literacy Strategies: History/ Social Studies, Common Core and Literacy Strategies: Mathematics, and Common Core and Literacy Strategies: Science.
