How do the Common Core Math, ELA, and Next Gen Science Standards Overlap? – Robert Kaplinsky

I wanted to share a resource from Tina Cheuk out of the Understanding Language department at Stanford University who created a very useful graphic organizer to show that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics, English Language Arts, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have significant overlap and can be collectively implemented for students’ benefit. The three lists below show student expectations for CCSS English Language Arts, NGSS Practice Standards, and CCSS Mathematics Practice Standards. The thought of incorporating and implementing each of the lists separately may seem daunting. Therefore, showing how they can be tackled in unison is very powerful.

We all have them, some good and some bad.

Mathematical Habits of Mind

We pick them up from friends, family, and even strangers. But we may not recall who we picked them up from or when they began. Because we've practiced them over and over, these seemingly thoughtless repeated habits or behaviors, the pathways in our brain have become so broad, fast, and efficient in carrying them out that we do them automatically without even thinking. Yet these unconscious habits and behaviors add structure and order to our lives and help us to make sense of the world we live in.

Our classrooms are full of them. Experienced vs. Why Writing About Math Is The Best Part Of Common Core. Nctm. Does Common Core Math expect memorization? As a chubby girl at Treakle Elementary School (Mom said it was just “baby fat”), one thing I remember having to do was memorize my times tables.

Does Common Core Math expect memorization?

My well-meaning Dad and I sat at our kitchen table after dinner as he called out multiplication problems to me at lightning speed: six times six, twelve times eleven, eight times nine, ten times three. On and on it went. When I got one wrong (aargh!) , he went back to it again (and again). Unnerving, to be sure, but I felt great pride at (eventually) memorizing the entire lot and I relished the ritual that Dad and I shared as Mom finished the dishes and my near-teen sister chatted forever on the phone. I’ve since learned that not all teachers, kids, and parents are as smitten with memorizing fundamental math facts. Part of the rationale for academic standards is to standardize essential elements of what is taught and learned in core subjects of the K–12 curriculum. Which brings us to the Common Core State Standards for math (CCSS-M). 3.OA.C.7. How Much Freedom Should A Teacher Have?

They remember us for what we do for them. They are the inheritors of our work. One of the great joys and grave responsibilities of leaders is making sure that those in their care live lives not only of success, but also of significance. Kouzes and Posner, A Leader's Legacy, 2006 A research-affirmed leadership framework, PRIME describes actions for mathematics education leaders across all settings preK-12, in all of their complexity. I Don’t Teach First Grade; I Teach Mathematics. By Claire Riddell, posted July 5, 2016 — While teaching first grade, I sought out a partnership with a fifth-grade teacher to co-teach some math lessons in both of our classes.

I Don’t Teach First Grade; I Teach Mathematics

This partnership was not required by an administrator or a district initiative; instead it came from our mutual desire to understand mathematics and pedagogy before and after our respective grade levels. After experiencing just a few lessons in fifth grade, I realized that this partnership was opportunity to see into the future. Beyond Working Hard: What Growth Mindset Teaches Us About Our Brains. Growth mindset has become a pervasive theme in education discussions in part because of convincing research by Stanford professor Carol Dweck and others that relatively low-impact interventions on how a student thinks about himself as a learner can have big impacts on learning.

Beyond Working Hard: What Growth Mindset Teaches Us About Our Brains

The growth mindset research is part of a growing understanding and acknowledgement that many non-cognitive factors are important to academic learning. While it’s a positive sign that educators see value in the growth mindset research and believe they can implement it in their classrooms, the deceptively simple idea has led to some confusion and misperceptions about what a growth mindset really is and how teachers can support it in the classroom. It’s easy to lump growth mindset in with other education catchphrases, like “resiliency” or “having high expectations,” but growth mindset actually has a much more concrete definition. Approaching the world with a growth mindset can be very liberating. Tcm2014 08 18a.

Assessing understanding might be the most complex task an educator or academic institution is tasked with.

What Exactly Is Understanding

Unfortunately, professional development gives a lower level of attention to developing quality assessments, training that is rarely commensurate with this complexity. The challenge of assessment is no less than figuring out what a learner knows, and where he or she needs to go next. In other words, what does a learner understand? This in itself is an important shift from the days when curriculum was simply delivered regardless of the student's content knowledge.

Among the big ideas Richard and Rebecca DuFour brought to the educational mainstream consciousness was a shift from teaching to learning, a subtle but critical movement.
