“Preparing for PARCC and the Common Core Classroom”
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, including the Standards for Mathematical Practice, require a change in traditional teaching strategies. These sessions will provide examples of problem-solving tasks, concept development lessons, and assessments that challenge students to think critically and to connect important ideas and concepts. PARCC resources as well as sample curriculum modules will be shared and discussed. Effective instructional techniques designed to support students’ thinking, depth of knowledge, and mathematical growth will be demonstrated.
