The Heavy Lifting: The CCSS FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Common Core calls for a deeper understanding of mathematics. At this session, we'll explore this shift to better understand the Common Core - and what is required of teachers and students. We'll also practice creating lessons that address this shift, while learning the characteristics of an inquiry-based lesson.

Through what you've learned at this session, you will be better able to articulate strategies and structures that deepen student understanding before, during and after problem solving. You will also be able to explain how incorporating clear structures for problem solving can deepen student thinking and learn ways to provide daily practice in the CCSS Math Practice Standards.
