Curriculum - K-8 Math Textbook Adoption Committee

We will ask at least two teachers and a parent representative from each site as well as a principal representative, special education representative and a community representative participate in the process. In addition, we will have a highly-qualified, high-school math instructor co-chair the committee. The committee will receive a copy of the National Core Standards and we will review materials from several different publishers using a rubric establish by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics that evaluates based upon the following: The committee scheduled meetings and reviews are as follows [meetings are scheduled from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. in The Learning Center - Room 26]: August 24th – Review Standards and Goals of the Committee/Process of Evaluation September 28th – October 12th – Materials Available for Review – The Fine Arts Center September 14th– Convene to Narrow Choices to the Top Three. Quality Review Rubric & Materials. The Quality Review Rubric emerged from the EQuip Network which is tri-state collaborative including Massachusettes, Rhode Island and New York.

Quality Review Rubric & Materials

Teachers created lessons aligned to the Common Core State Standards and wanted a tool to help define "quality. " A rubric was designed to address lessons in math and English Language Arts using a common definition of quality, The four dimensions in the rubric examine alignment to the CCSS, key shifts in the CCSS, instruction and assessment. EQuIP teams are learning how to use tools and processes to review the quality of materials (tasks, lesson, units, modules) and to receive feedback prior to implementation. The following materials are designed to assist disrticts in the implementation of quality lessons, units, and materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

In CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts – Grade 6, the learning content is divided into concepts.

CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts - Grade 6

Each concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and explore more practice. There are also video links provided to give students an audio/visual way of connecting with the content. 1. About Us - Curriculet. We believe that every moment of learning begins with reading, that teaching is a craft, and that the most effective curricula begins with the inspired work of great teachers and is perfected through peer collaboration.

Common Core high school math standards. Rubrics for the Common Core. Educators are busy re-mapping and re-working curriculum at all levels to align with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Rubrics for the Common Core

As I began to take a look at this monumental initiative, I decided a way I might help was to identify the rubrics that have been developed thus far for assessment of these standards. Some states started earlier than others with this project and I am sure additional resources will be showing up on the Web soon! Here are the rubric links that I have located thus far: I also found two rubrics for reviewing lessons and units for the CCSS:As I find additional ones, I will be adding them to my Assessment and Rubrics page. Have you come across any other useful tools to support the CCSS? Has your district created a series of rubrics in ELA or Math? To measure what tests can't, some schools turn to surveys.

Teachers facilitate math talk in the classroom, but introducing a structured discussion format called the talking circle can influence opportunities for equitable student participation.

Talking Circles Promote Equitable Discourse

Drawing on my reflections over the 2013–14 academic year and reviewing my detailed teaching notes and lesson plans, I take a close look at the structure of the talking circle and compare it with that of two other discussion formats that I commonly use in my classroom—traditional whole-class discussions and small-group discussions. I explore a mechanism that can potentially disrupt patterns of stratified classroom talk, with tradeoffs between frequency and spontaneity of student contributions.

I hope teachers can use this information to begin experimenting with talking circles in their classrooms, finding versions that fit their school culture, and to reflect critically on the issue of promoting equitable classroom discourse.
