Jefferson County-AFT: For Teachers, By Teachers

These two units of instruction for high school English language arts were written by educators in Jefferson County, Ala., under a grant from the AFT Innovation Fund. The grant, to Jefferson County-AFT, provided support for teachers to come together to study the Common Core State Standards and write aligned lessons. Educators and a professor from the University of Alabama-Birmingham also worked in several middle and high schools to introduce the standards to university students who are preparing to become teachers. During their student teaching experience, the UAB students taught parts of the units, giving them first-hand knowledge of the standards as they prepare to enter the profession.
