FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2010 National Teacher of the Year Sarah Brown Wessling hosts "Let's Chat Core" on Teaching Channel's "Tchers' Voice" Blog

San Francisco, CATeaching Channel (Tch) launched a new series of audio and video blog posts today, entitled "Let's Chat Core" to help teachers across America better understand the Common Core State Standards and how to implement them in their own classrooms.

The series, which will run through February of 2013, is hosted by Tch's Teacher Laureate, 2010 National Teacher of the Year and current high school English teacher, Sarah Brown Wessling. It's designed to help teachers understand what the Common Core Standards are – and what they aren't – and give them detailed information on how to transition their teaching to meet these new standards.

As part of this series, Sarah will interview Common Core experts and spend time answering specific questions submitted by Tch users. She will also be sharing her thoughts and insights from her journey to implement the Common Core in her own classroom.

"Let's Chat Core" is the latest in a series of efforts by Teaching Channel to provide teachers with tangible information and actionable resources on the Common Core. Others include the more than 125+ free Common Core-focused videos in the Tch library – many of which show specific standards in action, as well as Sarah's "Top 10 Common Core Insider Secrets" white paper, which is available for free to all Tch registered users.
