COR Professional Learning Framework

This framework includes recommendations for professional learning on how to improve students’ online reasoning. We’ve designed these resources to be used flexibly with colleagues in your department, school, and beyond. Central to this professional learning framework are classroom simulations that offer opportunities to observe student challenges, reflect on instruction, and plan best practices in teaching Civic Online Reasoning. These activities are delivered on a free online platform called Teaching Moments or can be reviewed as Google Docs or printed pages. You may choose to have participants complete these activities before professional learning meetings or during them. 

We encourage groups to modify the materials to best suit their needs and interests. The classroom simulations are designed to be used sequentially, starting with Session 1 and ending with Session 4. For those looking to do just one session, we recommend Session 1 or 3. For those planning to do two or three sessions, we recommend doing Session 4 only if you’ve completed Session 1.
