CCSS Professional Learning Modules for Educators

Information about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) professional learning modules.

The California Department of Education (CDE) worked with experts in the field to develop professional learning modules (PLMs) that support educators in delivering curriculum aligned to the CCSS to all pupils. The modules are housed on the Digital Chalkboard Web site (formally Brokers of Expertise) and are available online at no cost. The modules were intended to be used by educators independently or as a face-to-face presentation. All materials are provided for either option and may be accessed on the Digital Chalkboard Web site. Please select the links below to view the modules.
