Georgia CCS · CCGPS Mathematics Grades K-5 · CCGPS Mathematics Glossary Third grade teachers working on unit revisions at GaDOE (June 2013) 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks Teacher and Student Editions of the 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks were posted on July 1, 2013, to GeorgiaStandards.Org and Learning Village. K-5 CCGPS Mathematics Overview The K-5 standards are organized using domains, overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades, clusters that illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade and standards which define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The K-5 standards are organized in the following domains: counting and cardinality; operations and algebraic thinking; number and operations in base ten; number and operations – fractions; measurement and data; and geometry. The focus in the K-5 standards is comparable to that seen in high-performing countries.

How does it shape our society and who we are? The novel is divided into three parts: For each batch of reading, I want you to keep a running journal composed of three items: An open-ended question that your answer using a brief paragraph. An open-ended question that you would like other students to answer. A list of no less than 10 SAT type words.

Educational Leadership:Instruction That Sticks:Strategies That Make Learning Last Daniel T. Willingham The second way is by illuminating fundamental principles of how students think and learn. Every teacher has a theory of how children learn; the theory may be unstated, but every teacher takes actions (or refrains from taking them) in the belief that doing so will help kids learn better. If researchers could offer principles of memory that are relatively universal across students, materials, and contexts, now that would help educators. Learning to Teach Oneself In the early years of schooling, we don't expect students to be able to guide their own learning; the teacher is largely responsible for creating classroom experiences that lead to student learning. Researchers have asked college students how they study, and the results show that most use inefficient strategies (Hartwig & Dunlosky, 2012; Kornell & Bjork, 2007). These results fit well with another, highly informal finding from my own teaching. What Students Typically Do Clearly the first strategy is not optimal.
