This thesis offers a model professional development workshop to high school geometry teachers, with a focus on the Common Core State Standards in geometry, including a description of the workshop, materials to assist in the presentation, and follow-up materials. This workshop, which is based upon curriculum written for EngageNY under the direction of Common Core, Inc., has been presented by the author on four separate occasions to a total of approximately two hundred teachers and other school and district personnel over the past few months. Feedback obtained from attendees has been uniformly positive, indicating that the information and understanding obtained as a direct result of the workshop experience will be useful both in teaching the curriculum and in assisting other geometry teachers in the attendees’ schools and districts.
