    Children’s books sales are up across the board, with increases ranging from 12% to 37% for paper books and 250% for children’s ebooks.”

    And Some More…

    “According to a study released by the Pew Research Center, 60 percent of Americans survey surveyed in the age group 16 to 29 said they still visited the library. They use libraries to conduct research, borrow print, audio and electronic books and, in some cases, read magazines and newspapers.”

    Source: Haughney, C., “Young People Frequent Libraries, Study Finds,” New York Times, October, 2012.

    “U.S. fourth graders are definitely looking better. From 2006 to 2011, their math performance on TIMSS bumped up twelve points and now trails that of their counterparts in just seven other lands (in East Asia and Northern Ireland). Even more remarkable results come from PIRLS: Of the fifty-three systems participating, only four from abroad bested the U.S.’s score (Hong Kong, Russia, Finland, and Singapore). Further, Singapore is the only foreign system to surpass us at the “advanced” level, where an impressive 17 percent of American fourth graders can be found.”

    • Key Word Sort:

    • Review the terms from the Standards.

    • Sort them into categories.

    • Within the terms, decide on those that are the labels for the categories.

    • One group of terms does not have a label… you determine what it is.


    A quick trip through the math ccss

    A Quick Trip Through the Math CCSS

    • Find a partner.

    • On the wiki, open your tour “map” to the Common Core Standards.

  • With your partner, take a trip through the Math Standards and Appendices.

  • When you finish, complete the “ticket” together on your table.


  • Lessons learned

    Lessons Learned…


    Discovery education common core academy

    Re-Sort?

    Now that you’ve been through the Standards…would you change anything in your sort?

    And the missing label?


    The ccss shifts what do they mean for us

    The CCSS Shifts – What Do They Mean for Us…

    • Activity: Text Rendering:

    • Find A New Partner.

      • Read the Instructional Shifts for Math.

      • Highlight a sentence, phrase and word that are meaningful to your understanding of the shifts.

      • Share the meaningful sentences, phrases and words with your partner.

      • Together, decide on one sentence, one phrase and one word that is the best way to highlight the shifts.

    • Exploring the CCSS Main Domains:

    • Use the activity record sheet to examine the domains for your grade level or a grade level of choice.

    • Note for each domain at your grade level whether it is a beginning point, building point, or end point

    • Record any insights you have about the big ideas for your grade level, based on the domains.

    Standards for Mathematical Practice

    These eight standards describe a variety of expertise that mathematics teachers at all levels need to develop in their students.

    Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

    Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

    Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

    Moelwith mathematics.

    Use appropriate tools strategically.

    Attend to precision.

    Look for and make use of structure.

    Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

    Read the first three words of each of the practices to yourself… what do you notice?

    Unpacking the Standards for Mathematical Practice


    Discovery education common core academy

    Standards in Practice In Action

    What important mathematical concepts would a student need to understand in order to be successful with this task?

    When engaged in this task, what would it look like for a student to demonstrate proficiency in the mathematical practice standards?

    Discovery education common core academy

    Standards in Practice In Action

    • What mathematical concepts are being addressed in this lesson?

    • To what extent are individual students demonstrating proficiency with the Standards in Practice? What is your evidence?

    • How do the instructional decisions support student learning?

    Watch video: Collect evidence and respond with your Evidence/Interpretation Chart

    Debrief: Standards in Practice

    • How will you use the standards for mathematical practice to inform your instruction and lesson planning?

    • What do you anticipate to be challenges in supporting students in developing proficiency in these practice standards? What actions will you take to address and overcome these challenges?

    • What questions remain for you about the mathematical practice standards?

    Confirmed vs. MythBuster

    1. The math CCSS only focus on skills, not content knowledge.

    Key math topics are missing or appear in the wrong grade levels.

    3. The math CCSS prescribe to teachers how to teach.

    4. The Common Core State Standards require a lot of funding to implement.

    5. The rigor and complexity of the math CCSS begins in Kindergarten and continues to accelerate through high school using an integrated approach.
