Dear Math Common Core Task Force,
The next Mathematics Common Core Task Force is scheduled for Monday, December 16, 2013 at 3:00 at KD.
I’d like to meet to review and discuss:
· Assessment implementation, data collection
· Materials and supplies
I think it should be less than an hour to touch base. It would be great if you could attend!!!
Who: Math Common Core Task Force
What: Curriculum/Standards implementation
Where: KD (second floor conference room)
When: Monday, December 16th, 2013 3:00pm
I will send out an additional email to see if there are any other math teachers that would like to join our group. I hope you can make it!!
Last year our teachers, Jen Daigneault, Corinne Ferri, Tracey Nangle and Hannah Cevoli presented information about argument writing throughout the year. They volunteered to study the common core standards, compile resources, and create an engaging presentation to support us as we transition to the CCSS. They did a great job and I thank them for their time, energy and effort!
After the PD session, one of our HS teachers suggested that we create a blog that all teachers could access to share instructional strategies, tips, and ideas. Great idea, here it is!
All NS teachers are welcome to participate! You may participate by:
(A) visiting and reading the blog
(B) by commenting on posts and information or
(C) by posting your own blog posts sharing your experiences with implementing argument writing
If you would like to post blogs, shoot me an email and I will give you the user name and password.
I will also be available to give a quick tutorial to anyone interested in posting information. It is pretty simple and will only take 15 minutes or so.
This has been quite a busy year already! Implementing the new math curriculum and standards is an enormous undertaking and I must say I am impressed with the dedication, commitment and professionalism of our K-12 math teachers.
I am looking forward to seeing you all!
