On Tuesday, September 9th at 7 pm, Way Library, in cooperation with the League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area (LWVPA), welcomes Roger W. Minier, Ph.D., of the Northwest Ohio Educational Technology Foundation (NWOET). Dr. Minier will give a presentation on the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
Dr. Minier will discuss “Common Core History - K-12 Testing and Beyond”, explaining how Common Core content standards were developed, how those standards relate to K-12 student testing, and what the future may hold for educational goals in Ohio. He will also briefly discuss the Third Grade Reading Guarantee, Ohio's new high school graduation requirements, and how these may impact students’ ability to get jobs with and without education ("College") beyond the
high school diploma.
Dr. Minier has over 12 years classroom teaching experience, and earned his Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Toledo. He has served as Executive Director of NWOET for the past 12 years.
