The Kentucky Department of Education invites every educator in the state to join Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs for a book-mob, a four-week online study (Feb. 20-March 19) of Dr. Jacobs’ Mapping to the Core LumiBook (eBook).

This is an unprecedented opportunity to access free Common Core guidance from the most renowned experts on the subject and is available to all Kentucky educators through CIITS. During the event, educators will read Mapping to the Core, going online to discuss what they’ve learned and to receive feedback and insights from Dr. Jacobs and her co-authors, Dr. Ann Johnson, Dr. Debbie Sullivan, and Dr. Marie Alcock.

KDE has organized this event especially around the needs and challenges of Kentucky educators.

Every Kentucky attendee will have the opportunity to:

  •  Interact with Dr. Jacobs and her team to see how they are solving implementation challenges around the US
  • Network and get ideas and best practices for Common Core implementation from teachers and leaders all over the US
  • Get resources for Common Core implementation that can be used immediately in classrooms and front offices

The Mapping to the Core book mob begins on Feb. 20 and continues every day until March 19. The entire event is being held online and available through your Mapping to the Core LumiBook.
