**WelcomeMathematics Educators**Day 1 - Afternoon Session Educator Effectiveness Academy Summer 2012**Ice Breaker**Find Someone Who Write the name and school of a person who- Debby Ward MSDE Enter a new name in each box.**Day**1 Afternoon Content Team Session Outcomes Mathematics Teachers will: Become familiar with the components of an MSDE Unit Plan. • 2. Examine specific components of a unit plan • to determine when the information could be used. Review Lesson Seeds through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).**Warm Up**Warm Up Outcome: The participants will activate prior knowledge of the contents of the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Framework documents.**Warm Up**• What information is found in the Maryland Common Core Curriculum Framework documents that were reviewed at last year’s EEA? • The content standards for each grade level • Essential Skills and Knowledge statements that help to clarify the standards • The Standards for Mathematical Practice that describe student behaviors • All of the above**Warm Up**ANSWER D. All of the Above • The content standards for the grade level Essential Skills and Knowledge statements clarify the standards Standards for Mathematical Practice describe student behaviors**Warm Up**• Which of the following statements about the Maryland Common Core Framework documents is false? • It provides standards by grade level in grades PreK-8. • It conveys the exact order in which the standards will be taught. • It divides the high school courses into Units. • It gives examples.**Warm Up**• Which of the following statements about the Maryland Common Core Framework documents is false? • ANSWER • It conveys the exact order in which the standards will be taught. • It will be up to local school systems to decide on a scope and sequence.**Warm Up**• 3. From which document did Maryland adapt its framework document? • The Maryland Voluntary State Curriculum. • The College Board Initiative for Mathematics. • No Child Left Behind. • The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.**Warm Up**• 3. From which document did Maryland adapt the framework document? • ANSWER • D. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.**Warm Up**• 4. What is the significance of the blue bold font used in the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Frameworks? • Items unique to the Maryland State Common Core Curriculum frameworks • Terminology/diagrams that are linked to clarifications • Standard codes that reference other standards in the same grade level • Connections to other grade level standards**Warm Up**• 4. What is the significance of the blue bold font used in this document? • ANSWER • B. Terminology/diagrams that are linked to clarifications**Warm Up**• 5. Who wrote the Maryland Curriculum Frameworks? • Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers • National Governors Association Center for Best Practices • C. Maryland Mathematics Educators • D. Council of Chief State School Officers**Warm Up**• 5. Who wrote the Maryland Curriculum Frameworks? • ANSWER • C. Maryland Mathematics Educators**MSDE Unit Component -Overview**Outcome: The participants will become familiar with the components of an MSDE unit plan.**MSDE Unit Components**Overview of Unit Components**Unit Plans Provide “One Stop Shopping”**Unit plans incorporate information from: • Common Core State Standards for Mathematics • Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Frameworks • PARCC Content Frameworks • Maryland Educators • Current Maryland Toolkit • RTTT Projects • Appendix A (High School)**Unit Component Categories**Big Picture Build Understanding PARCC Content Framework components Instructional Resources**Big Picture**• Overview • Enduring Understandings • Essential Questions • Vertical Alignment**Building Teacher Understanding**• Teacher Notes • Possible Student Outcomes • Possible Organization of Standards • Connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice • Content Standards with Essential Skills and Knowledge and Clarifications • Vocabulary/Terminology/Concepts • Common Misconceptions**Instructional Resources**• Model Lesson Plan • Lesson Seeds • Sample Assessment Items • Resources • Interventions/Enrichments • Interdisciplinary Connections**PARCC Content Framework**• Examples of Key Advances • Focus Standards • Fluency Expectations/Recommendations • Content Emphasis by Cluster Elementary**MSDE Goals**• By June 2012: Two units per grade/course • By June 2013: Remaining units for each grade/course • 2013 – 2014: Add/edit/polish units**Jigsaw Activity**Outcome: The participants will complete a jigsaw activity to become familiar with components of an MSDE unit plan.**JIGSAW**Count off 1-4**Component Review Groups**• Group 1 • Overview • Teacher Notes • Content Emphases by • Clusters • Group 2 • Lesson Seeds • Lesson Plans • Group 3 • Content Standards with • Essential Skills… • Group 4 • Focus Standards and • Possible Organization of • Unit Standards**Home Group Sharing**• Return to Home Group • Share highlights of “Expert” • discussions**Summary**MSDE Unit Plan • Does Provide • Information to help build • understanding of the new • standards and how they fit • together • Instructional resources • (under development) • Does NOT Provide • Scope and Sequence • Daily lesson plans**Break**Time**Unit Plan: In-Depth Review**Outcome: The participants will complete an in-depth review of an MSDE Mathematics Unit plan.**Unit Plan: In-Depth Review**Task Note the sections on the foldable. Review these sections in the unit plan. Discuss the importance of each section with your group. Continued on next slide**Debrief In-Depth Review**• During this discussion, answer the following question on each page of the foldable: • How might you incorporate • the information in this section • when planning a unit?**SUMMARY**Each component of an MSDE Unit Plan provides important information about the new curriculum. It is important as educators that we become familiar with the value of each component.**BrainBreak**BrainBreak BrainBreak**Lesson Seed and UDL**• Outcome • The participants will: • Become familiar with the format of an MSDE • Lesson Seed. • Examine lesson seeds searching for evidence of adherence to the Principles of UDL.**MSDE Lesson Seed**Facts • Are created by Maryland educators • Provide learning experiences around which • teachers may build lessons. • Serve as a stimulus for lesson • development**Spring Webinar…**Here is the link for the Spring Webinar on UDL… http://www.udl-rttt.mdonlinegrants.org**Principles of UDL**http://www.cast.org/udl/index.html**Principles of UDL**http://udlwheel.mdonlinegrants.org/ Make a paper wheel: http://udlandopd.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/udl20diy20figure.pdf**VIDEO**Universal Design for Learning**Lesson Seed Review**Directions for Fortune Teller**Summary**Catching Up Red Name one Standard for Mathematical Practice.
