Teachers Ignite was recently contracted by The National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) in partnership with The Hunt Institute to produce four Special Episodes of The Ignite Show  ( ) focusing on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This is work is also in collaboration with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the National Education Association (NEA), and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  These web-based shows will launch in the Fall of 2013 and will be accompanied by teacher resources to assist in implementation of the standards as well as other information for parents and general public to become more familiar with the standards.  There will be distribution of these shows to all constituents of these organizations.
