session objectives
Session Objectives
  • Present an overview of how to implement A Story of Units:
    • Identify the Standards and their accompanying Progressions, as well as the Instructional Shifts as the foundation of A Story of Units.
    • Recognize the coherence within and across all grades K-5.
    • Describe how A Story of Units it builds on prior knowledge and supports future learning.
    • Develop a plan for immediate implementation, on-going support and continuous feedback.

Curriculum Overview


what is a story of units
What is A Story of Units?
  • A PK-5 math curriculum developed in close consultation with the writers of the CCSS. (p.3)
  • Not only built entirely around the CCSS, but the progression documents as well.
  • Based on the principle that mathematics is most effectively taught as a logical engaging story with the main character being “the unit”.
  • Skills consistently build on prior knowledge and support future learning rather than being taught in isolation. (p.4)

parcc type i ii iii tasks
PARCC Type I, II & III Tasks
  • Type I
      • Computational problems, fluency exercises, & applications including one-step and multi-step word problems.
    • Type II
      • Requires students to demonstrate reasoning skills, justify their arguments, and critique the reasoning of others.
    • Type III
      • Students model real-world situations using mathematics as they demonstrate more advanced problem solving skills.

In the How To Document

  • All students must have the opportunity to learn and meet the high standards if they are to access the knowledge and skills needed to be college and career ready.
  • Accommodations cannot be just an extra set of resources for a particular set of students.
  • Must be folded into the curriculum in such a way that it becomes part of its DNA.
  • Research provided by Universal Design for Learning

Scaffolding Continued
  • The scaffolds/accommodations integrated into A Story of Units do not alter the instructional level, content or performance criteria.
  • Provides students with choices with how they access content and demonstrate their knowledge and ability.
  • Basically, faithful adherence to the modules IS the primary scaffolding tool!!

      • Allow creativity in expression & modeling solutions (Above Level)
  • Provide Multiple Means of Action & Expression
      • Accomplish within a time frame as opposed to a task frame (LD)
      • Get students up and moving “Show me an obtuse angle” (Below Level)
  • Provide Multiple Means of Engagement
      • Peer tutoring to provide opportunities for critiquing the reasoning of others & justifying solutions (Below Level)
      • Provide a variety of ways to respond (ie. Choral, oral, personal white board, fingers, pictorial models (ELL)
