IMPORTANT MESSAGE: COMMONLIT WILL SOON BE SYNCED WITH CLEVER--HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO SAVE YOUR CURRENT STUDENT DATA WHEN MAKING THE CHANGE TO THE CLEVER SINGLE SIGN-ON!!! 
Currently, CommonLit uses a Google Single Sign-on where you go to https://www.commonlit.org, click on "LOGIN" in the upper, right corner, then click on "Log in with Google." THIS IS CHANGING! READ AND CLICK BELOW FOR NEW LOGIN INSTRUCTIONS AND TRANSFERING STUDENT DATA TO THE NEW CLEVER SINGLE SIGN-ON!!

Starting early next week, you will see the CommonLit icon showing up in your Clever Apps. Below is a slide presentation to show you how to make the transition to the Clever Single Sign-on for CommonLit without losing any of your student information. Basically you will "MATCH" Clever Sections/Students to CommonLit Sections/Students. DO NOT IMPORT CLEVER SECTIONS AS NEW SECTIONS! THIS WILL CAUSE YOU TO LOSE ALL OF YOUR CURRENT STUDENT WORK. Please view and follow all of the steps for "Matching," not "Importing."

ELA Middle School Curriculum Liaisons

  • Each middle school and K-6/K-8 building would select one person to act as the ELA Middle School Curriculum Liaison for their building.
  • The person chosen should be a leader in ELA content and chosen by the building administration or BLT and may be a member of the BLT. The person could also be chosen by collective decision of the ELA teachers in the building.
  • This person would serve as a liaison between English 6-12 Curriculum and the ELA 6-8 teachers in their building, with the understanding that they would share information gained and professional development experienced at three meetings with the ELA 6-8 teachers at their school. This is similar to the Teacher Leader positions from two years ago. 
  • Payment will be made based on meeting attendance.
  • Dates: February 28, March 28, and April 25
  • Time: 4-6pm
  • Location: Linmoor Education Center, Room 25B
  • NOTE: This opportunity is for ELA only. No other contents will have a Middle School Curriculum Liaison.

Use this link to add the name of your school’s selected ELA Curriculum Liaison by February 14th: https://tinyurl.com/ELACurriculumLiaison.


ELA Middle School Content Experts

  • All 6-8 ELA Teachers are eligible to apply for this experience and each building may have more than one teacher attend. 
  • Accepted applicants will work collectively on content-specific projects to enhance personal growth and student achievement.

Reading/Writing Workshop, Blended Learning, Stations, etc.) 
  • These projects will be used in the content experts’ classrooms, should be shared at the building level, and may be shared at the ReImagine Conference on June 6-7, 2017.
  • Payment will be made based on meeting attendance.
  • Dates: January 30, February 20, March 20, April 17, and May 15
  • Time: 4-6pm
  • Location: Linmoor Education Center, Room 25B
