Winter Provost Series
Speaker: Dr. Lucy Calkins
January 30, 2014


Our January 30 Winter installment of The Provost's Series which took place on campus was a great success!  Tom James, Provost and Dean of the College, introduced Dr. Lucy Calkins, The Richard Robinson Professor of Children's Literature, Director of TC's Literacy Specialist Program, and Founding Director of The Reading and Writing Project at TC. Lucy spoke to a packed room of alumni and friends in 197 Grace Dodge Hall. Her talk, "Pathways to the Common Core State Standards: The Challenge to Understand and Implement the CCSS," addressed various challenges and debates surrounding it, such as teacher failure, economic disparities among children, funding, and the Common Core unfairly being associated with other documents that interpret it more as a curriculum than as an educational guide. A lively Q & A and reception followed in Everett Lounge, where alumni and friends mingled and continued conversations with Lucy. If you missed it, be sure to check out her video presentation above!
