Instructional Practices

Student-centered learning strategies engage students in the kind of learning and exploration of ideas required by the Common Core Standards.

We provide opportunities for partnerships and workshop to assist educators with:

  • Project Based Learning – We  provide a rewarding framework that helps teachers and students grapple with real-life challenges while mastering rigorous content standards and developing college and career readiness skills in every subject.
  • Project CRISS – Our certified trainer will introduce the CRISS Frameworks for Teaching and Learning (a reform initiative for integrating the Common Core into a school system) with research foundation embedded in enlightening activities and common language.
  • Network for Responsive Classroom Teachers and Schools in Delaware – PDCE supports a network of Delaware schools using Responsive Classroom approaches providing workshops based on the Research based Responsive Classroom approach, focusing on the five competencies identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL): self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making.


The College of Education and Human Development also provides additional professional development services for school leaders at all levels of their career. To learn more, visit our Delaware Academy for School Leadership (DASL) website.
