The SoL Education Partnership has been involved in a two-year project, to explore how systems thinking tools
and approaches have been incorporated into lessons and curricula used to help students meet some of the Common Core
State Standards. We are sharing our learnings through a webinar series. These webinars are each one hour in length
and do not assume any background in systems thinking. They are ideal as an introduction, or a review, to the tools and
concepts. They are free but limited in size. You can attend any or all of them and are welcome to invite your colleagues to join you.
They focus on early reading, mathematical practices, and reading informational texts. For more details and to register,
