Strong leadership is essential for achieving the real work of ensuring each and every child meets or exceeds the rigorous learning targets defined by the Common Core. This presentation is designed to enable school leaders to try out hands-on learning as it relates to the Common Core State Standards. It will sample two high-impact strategies to effectively address the curriculum shifts in grades K-2 -- Reading in the primary grades and Tactile Problem Solving for Math -- Using Appropriate Tools Strategically. This presentation will give you concrete ideas, just-in-time strategies, and sample center-based/work session resources, supporting leaders as they transition to Common Core and next-generation assessments.

  • There are many ways to organize curricula. The challenge, now rarely met, is to avoid those that distort mathematics and turn off students
  • Clarify for participants that there are only two sets of Common Core State Standards: one for mathematics and one for English language arts and literacy in the content areas. There are no CCSS for science or history content , for instance. Note that in the elementary grades, the same set of standards apply to English language arts and the content areas, whereas at the secondary level, a separate set of standards specific to the content areas are included. For instance, the facilitator might say , “ The state-led effort to create standards that will prepare students for college and the workplace was coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. It resulted in TWO sets of grade-specific standards: K-12 Mathematics K-12 English language arts and literacy in the content areas – (Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, Language) The Common Core State Standards comprise only these two areas. There are not, for instance, Common Core science content standards or history content standards. Oregon will continue to have separate content standards in these areas. The English Language Arts and Literacy standards are divided into an elementary section and a secondary section, with three appendices. You’ll notice that at the 6-12 level, literacy in the content areas is a separate section with separate (but parallel) standards for the content areas. However, at the elementary level, the same set of Core Standards apply to both English language arts and literacy in the content areas, reflecting the fact that most or all of the instruction students in these grades receive comes from one teacher.”
  • Say , “This table includes the domains for K–8; in addition, it has the conceptual categories for high school. This table is organized so you can see the scope. Instead of just listing each domain, related The right side of the chart lists the five conceptual categories for high school: Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. If you select one conceptual category and move left along the row, you’ll find the domains at the middle and elementary school levels from which this concept builds.”
  • Intentionally and Appropriately Teaching Mathematics in the Early Childhood Classroom •“… build on children’s experience and knowledge,… •… base mathematics curriculum and teaching practices on knowledge of children’s… development,… •… provide for children’s deep and sustained interaction,… •… provide ample time, materials, teacher support for… play.”
  • First, I’ll sing the introduction Join in on the pattern as soon as you think you know it Use the pictures, shapes, and colors to help you remember what to do.
  • “ Hands-on activities are fairly uncommon; just 8% of teachers report working with blocks and 26% with objects such as models.”
  • 8 Practices There are eight Standards for Mathematical Practice; same for all grade levels K-12 with growing expectations as students progress through the grades. Mathematical practices are embedded within the learning of mathematics content.
  • Students can’t make good choices until they have experience with the tools. This lesson gives them structured experience then you ask about using the tools: How did they work? What if you wanted to measure this long wall with inchworms? Could you? Yes. Would it be difficult? Is there a better tool? How do you decide when to use an inchworm or a ruler, yard stick or tape measure?
  • How did they work? What if you wanted to measure this long wall with inchworms? Could you? Yes. Would it be difficult? Is there a better tool? How do you decide when to use an inchworm or a ruler, yard stick or tape measure?
  • The author used the word as a clue, or Thinking Signal, to help us understand how she thinks frogs are especially interesting. Finish reading. On chart paper, write the word “amazing.” Introduce the Vocabulary Rods by holding up the red Vocabulary Rod Slowly read the words on each side: unbelievable, incredible, astonishing
  • Somewhere in our history, many of us were convinced that if our questioning climbed a ladder and we called on students whose names we wrote on popsicle sticks and pulled randomly from a styrofoam cup, we were teaching students critical thinking.”
