WelcomeElementaryMathematics Educators & Principals Day 3 Educator Effectiveness Academy Summer 2011
Day 3 The participant will: • Continue to reflect on how the Standards for Mathematical Practice will be infused into daily instruction in the mathematics classroom. • Continue to investigate the content of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and related documents.
Find Someone Who Outcome: The participant will refine his/her understanding of the Common Core State Standards and the associated vocabulary.
Find Someone Who • Mix and mingle, ask each other one question on the handout. • Record the correct answer and the name of respondent • Move to a new person and ask another question. • Continue until the handout is complete.
Your Name Goes Here John Doe answer Record name and answer
Learning Progression of a Standard Outcome: The participant will develop a learning progression that includes a selected standard.
Learning Progression of a Standard • In your group, discuss what a student must know before learning the targeted standard and what knowledge the targeted standard will support in later coursework. • Find the “Targeted Standard” in the appropriate grade in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics or the appropriate Frameworks. • Search the different grade levels before and after, for standards that fall into a Learning Progression with this standard. • Record your findings on the provided table.
Summary • The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics were developed with consideration for research-based learning progressions that detail what is known today about the development of students’ mathematical knowledge, skill, and understanding over time. • Examination of selected standards that exemplify a learning progression from one grade/course to another is intended to provide evidence of this fact.
Principals Welcome to Session 2
Day 3 • Outcomes for Session 2 • The participant will: • Identify the Standards for Mathematical Practice that would be employed while completing a selected rich open-ended mathematics task • Identify standards that need support and offer suggestions regarding the types of support that would be useful
Standards for Mathematical Practice 8 Corners Outcome The participant will identify the Standards for Mathematics Practice that would be employed while completing a selected rich open-ended mathematics task.
At the end of your party, there were two boxes of pizza with some pieces left over. Box A had two slices of a medium cheese pizza left over that had been cut into eight equal pieces. Box B had two slices of a medium cheese pizza left over that was cut in six equal pieces. • Which box do you want to take home and why? Justify your response using models and pictures.
Summary Share Why did you make your selection?
Toolkit Input Outcome The participant will identify standards that need support and offer suggestions regarding the types of support that would be useful.
Toolkit Input • Review your assigned Domain • Independently, select 5 Standards • that are in need of support • Record your selections on your • “Individual Worksheet”
Toolkit Input • As a group: • Reach consensus on a “Top 5 List” for • your group and record your results • on the Group Toolkit Input form • Suggest Toolkit components that • would support the “Top 5 List”
Group- Toolkit Input Form Grade 4 Geometry Lesson ideas to help students make sense of this standard. Lessons Seeds 4.G.2
Summary What are your overall impressions of the standards that you reviewed?
Principals Welcome to Session 3
Day 3 • Outcomes for Session 3 • The participant will: • Make connections between the • message delivered by a motivational • speaker and the Standards for • Mathematical Practice • Formulate a plan for training • teachers at their school
Dan Meyer Video Outcome The participant will make connections between the message delivered by a motivational speaker and the Standards for Mathematical Practice
Dan Meyer Video • While watching the video, look for connections between Dan Meyer’s message and the Standards for Mathematical Practice • Independently answer the provided questions • Share responses with your table group
Summary How does Dan Meyer’s philosophy on instruction compare to the Standards for Mathematical Practice?
Reflection Outcome The participant will formulate a plan for training teachers at their school.
Reflection • Independently, use the guiding questions to prepare discussion points to share with your school team • Share discussion points with members of your group
Exit Ticket What should be included in upcoming Educator Effectiveness Academy sessions/webinars to help with the transition to the Common Core State Standards?
