Teacher Candy is the story of one teacher’s experience with the Literacy Design Collaborative.
“I love LDC because its strong link to the CCSS also encourages my creativity and personal teaching style. LDC zeroes in on template tasks that I affectionately call ‘teacher candy.’ They make my life easier and support my teaching by providing structure without dictating my content. The template tasks have also given teachers a common language for talking about how to develop curricula driven by the CCSS. As a result of LDC, I have seen enormous growth in my students’ learning.” – Kathy Thiebes
