Why standards
WHY STANDARDS?

  • Are standards important in education, and if so, why?

  • How, if at all, do standards shape and influence your work as a teacher, and which standards do you use?

  • What do you see as the real (or potential) negatives of state-level defined standards?



Common core high school mathematics standards
Common core High SchoolMathematics Standards

Key areas of emphasis:

  • Applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges

  • Developing a depth of understanding and ability to transfer understandings to novel situations

  • Using mathematical modeling as well as the use of mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations and improve decisions

  • 5 conceptual categories:

  • Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability

    here?

    2. How are these standards

    reflected in the math courses

    at your school?

  • Reviewing example problems:

    Reactions, comments?

Meaningful standards based instruction

We put an enormous amount of energy into changing structures and usually leave instructional practice untouched…

Richard Elmore, 2002

Meaningful standards-based instruction

“The standards come alive when teachers study student work, collaborate with other teachers to improve their understanding of subjects and students’ thinking, and develop new approaches to teaching that are relevant and useful for them and their students.”

 Linda Darling-Hammond, 1997

Teacher support through professional “communities of practice”
