### Math Teaching Practices To Support Common Core

1. 1. WELCOME! ⊡Sign in for clock hours. ⊡Make a name tag. ⊡Choose a seat. ⊡Take a quick poll at http://activeprompt.org/poll/OCJYT We will begin promptly at 8 am. #NSDSummerInstitute
2. 2. MATH TEACHING PRACTICES TO SUPPORT COMMON CORE August 19, 2015 - PD Place session #6036 September 23, 2015 - Makeup session #6037 #NSDSummerInstitute
3. 3. Today’s Agenda: https://goo.gl/dWrXMM ⊡Introductions ⊡Goals and Outcomes ⊡NCTM’s Principles to Actions & Math Teaching Practices that Support CCSS-M ⊡Math Tasks that Promote Reasoning and Problem Solving ⊡Wrap-up #NSDSummerInstitute
5. 5. SIXLETS Take one Sixlet from the bag at your table. Yes, you can eat it but remember the color you chose. #NSDSummerInstitute
6. 6. SIXLETS Share around the table according to the color of Sixlet you chose. #NSDSummerInstitute
7. 7. IF YOU COULD... Red: ...choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why? Orange: ...trade places with 1 person, who would it be? Yellow: ...be an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in? Green: ..have 1 wish granted, what would it be? Brown: ...take a road trip with anybody (dead or alive), who would it be and where would you go? #NSDSummerInstitute
8. 8. SIXLETS Take a different color Sixlet from the bag at your table. Yes, you can eat it but remember the color you chose. #NSDSummerInstitute

10. 10. Red: ...about a teacher who had a positive influence on you. Orange: ...a goal you have this school year. Yellow: ...1-2 words that capture a value you would like to promote in your classroom. Green: ...about the best school year you’ve ever had. What made it so great?

18. 18. THE BIG GOAL Improve student learning and achievement #NSDSummerInstitute
19. 19. “Teachers know best about what works in the classroom. That is why these standards establish what students need to learn but do not dictate how teachers should teach. Instead, schools and teachers will decide how best to help students reach the standards. from http://www.corestandards.org/about-the-standards/myths-vs-facts/ #NSDSummerInstitute
20. 20. “Unless and until there is a focus on how to develop the teaching skills required to help all students meet more rigorous standards and master the curriculum (and all teachers use assessments to improve instruction), student achievement is unlikely to improve more than marginally. from Change Leadership: A Practical Guide to Transforming Our Schools #NSDSummerInstitute
21. 21. GOALS TODAY Explore math teaching practices that support Common Core Explore math tasks that provide opportunities for implementing these math teaching practices #NSDSummerInstitute
22. 22. OUTCOME Create a Math Task Implementation Plan for a math task that promotes reasoning and problem solving #NSDSummerInstitute
23. 23. Principles to Actions ⊡Read Principles to Actions Executive Summary ⊡Identify what you consider to be the most significant idea addressed in the article. Underline or highlight the passage. ⊡When all group members are ready, use the Save the Last Word For Me protocol to discuss the article with your group. #NSDSummerInstitute
24. 24. #NSDSummerInstitute Protocol: Save the Last Word For Me 1.One member reads their chosen passage to the group. 2.The other 3 participants each have 1 minute to respond to that idea. 3.The first participant takes 2 minutes to state why s/he chose that point and to respond to his/her colleagues based on what s/he heard. 4.Repeat until all group members have had a chance to have “the last word.”
25. 25. P2A Math Teaching Practices ⊡Complete the Self-Assessment individually. ⊡Silently read and reflect on the Round Table questions. Be prepared to share your response for each question. #NSDSummerInstitute
26. 26. Round Table ⊡Each person in the group briefly shares his/her answer to question #1 (1 min each). ⊡Repeat for each question. #NSDSummerInstitute
27. 27. BUMPER STICKIES Create a bumper stickie (like a bumper sticker, but on a sticky note) that captures a major idea, learning, insight or take-away from our reading and discussion this morning. Be creative! On the back of your bumper stickie, make 5 small boxes. #NSDSummerInstitute
28. 28. BUMPER STICKIES 1.While the music plays, begin trading Post-it notes, making as many trades as possible. 2.When the music stops, FREEZE and find a partner near you. If you cannot find a partner, raise your hand and then partner up with another person with a raised hand. 3.With your partner, read both bumper stickies. Then rate the bumper stickies by distributing a total of 7 points between the two of them. 4.Repeat steps 1-3 for a total of five rounds. #NSDSummerInstitute
29. 29. ⊡After the last round, total the points for the bumper stickie you now have. The total should be a number 0-35. ⊡Place the bumper stickie you now have on the axis on the wall to create a histogram that includes all our bumper stickies. ⊡Please return to your seat.

34. 34. Think like a student ⊡Working independently, solve the task. ⊡Try to find as many different solution methods as possible. #NSDSummerInstitute
35. 35. Whip Around ⊡Briefly your solution method(s) with each other. (1 min each) ⊡Timekeeper monitors time for this task. #NSDSummerInstitute
36. 36. Task Implementation Planning Sheet ⊡Recorder makes an electronic copy of the Task Implementation Planning Sheet for your group. URL: https://goo.gl/UDeiz6 ⊡Record the task and names of group members at the top. #NSDSummerInstitute
37. 37. Think like a teacher As a group, use the Task Implementation Planning Sheet to discuss: ⊡the mathematics goals of the task ⊡opportunities for promoting reasoning and problem solving ⊡opportunities to address the other math teaching practices in Principles to Actions ⊡other PLC questions (time permitting) #NSDSummerInstitute
38. 38. Your Responsibility ⊡Facilitator moderates discussion and keeps group on task ⊡Timekeeper monitors time and keeps group moving so work is completed on time ⊡Summarizer restates the group’s conclusions or answers ⊡Recorder types group responses on the Task Implementation Planning Sheet #NSDSummerInstitute

41. 41. WRAP UP #NSDSummerInstitute
42. 42. Stars & Stairs ⊡On a post-it note, share: Write a few words that describe a valuable learning from today’s session. Describe the next step needed to further your learning. #NSDSummerInstitute
43. 43. STARS & STAIRS Place your Post-it on the axis on the wall to identify the math teaching practice you believe could have the greatest impact on student learning if you were to implement it or increase focus on it in your classroom. 1. Establish math goals to focus learning 2. Implement math tasks to promote reasoning and problem solving 3. Use and connect math representations 4. Facilitate math discourse 5. Pose purposeful questions. 6. Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding 7. Support productive struggle 8. Elicit and use evidence of student thinking. #NSDSummerInstitute
