Math Common Core: Major Shifts, Practices and Critical Areas of Focus (Professional development lesson plan with links to all resources!)

 

Day One (of two) of Middle School Math Common Core

 

This is a “flipped lesson” (AKA “flipped classroom” or “flipped teaching”). Please watch the following presentation BEFORE session one.

Navagating the Math Common Core State Standards: A Flipped Lesson

This is the presentation for “digging deeper” into math Common Core. Below are our learning targets, success criteria, tasks and resources for session one.

Digging Deeper into Math Common Core State Standards: Major shifts, math practices and critical areas of focus

Learning Target: I can use math knowledge and ways of thinking in my discussions with colleagues and provide evidence to support my thinking.

 Learning Target: I can explore major shifts, math practices and content focus areas for my grade so I can use them in my teaching.

Success Criteria

  • Contrast major shifts in the CCSS-M to current practice
  • Synthesize standards for math practices
  • Contrast major shifts in ways students demonstrate math proficiency (SBAC) to current practice
  • Analyze areas of focus for my grade level
  • Make connections to 5D
  • Self-reflect to personalize the learning

Success Criteria

Task

Resources

  •   Welcome and   introductions
  •   Co-construct   success criteria for talk learning target

 

 

 

Contrast major shifts in the CCSS-M to current practice
  •   Read and   discuss the literature through a gallery walk
  •   Consider shifts in   practices, assessment, and content

 

Synthesize standards for   math practices
  •   Discuss what math proficient students are
  •   Highlight   verbs. What do you notice?
  •   Distill the   main idea of each SMP
  •   Preview   resources through artifact box
“Artifact Box” Protocol for Math Practices Resources

Contrast major shifts in ways students   demonstrate math proficiency (SBAC) to current practice
  •   Link math practices   to Smarter Balance claims
  •   Do Smarter Balance sample items
  • Reflect on key shifts

 

Analyze areas of focus for my grade   level
  •   Review key fluencies,   critical areas in math and flows leading to algebra
  •   Highlight   concepts and skills & procedures in critical areas of focus
  •   Link standards   to areas of focus
  •   Unpack   standards
  •   Uncover cognitive   demand of standards
  •   Connect math   practices to standards
Make connections to 5D
  •   Practices
  •   Content
Self-reflect to personalize the   learning
  •   Future work, self-assessment,   reflection and feedback

 Day Two (of two) of Middle School Math Common Core

This is the presentation for “Charting our Course” in math Common Core. Below are our learning targets, success criteria, tasks and resources for session two.

Charting our Course: Critical Areas of Focus in Math Common Core State Standards

 

Learning target: I can analyze critical areas of focus so I can apply them in my teaching.

Success Criteria:

  • Activate and build on prior knowledge
  • Examine critical areas of focus for my grade level
  • Connect standards to critical areas of focus
  • Unpack the standards
  • Determine cognitive demand
  • Link content standards with Standards for Mathematical Practices
  • (Begin to) Align curriculum with standards
  • Make connections to 5D
  • Reflect to personalize the learning

 

SUCCESS CRITERIA TASKS
                                                                        Activate and build on prior knowledge

Anchor today’s learning to previous and future lessons by:

Examine critical areas of focus for my grade level
Connect standards to critical areas of focus
  •   List critical areas of focus
  •   Read description for each
  •   Identify standards that best support each
  •   Gallery walk – vertical alignment across grade levels
Unpack the standards
  •   Explain template
  •   Model by doing one together
  •   Teams unpack standards and record work in electronic template
 Determine cognitive demand of standards
  •   Read and discuss Depth of Knowledge chart
  •   Label each unpacked bullet with depth of knowledge level
Link content standards with Standards for Mathematical Practices
  •   Label each unpacked bullet with the SMP best fit to intentionally teach both together
(Begin to) align curriculum to standards
  •   Identify and record assessment questions for critical areas of focus/standards
  •   What trends do we see? What do we notice? What do we wonder about?
Make connections to 5D
  •   Make and discuss connections – Where do you see today’s work around content standards reflected in 5D?
Evaluate: Reflect and give feedback
  •   “Compass Points Reflection”: WWhat questions do you still have about our CCSS-M work? N-What additional information do you need to know or find out about this? S-What   is your current stance on our CCSS-M work so far? E-What excites   you about this? What are the “wows”?
  •   Feedback
