Event Details

CFN 609 would like to invite (Assistant Principal + 2) to attend an interactive half-day Professional Development in Text Complexity for Middle School Social Studies Teachers. 


If you have designated a lead teacher (In Galaxy) who is a Social Studies teacher, they should be your first choice to attend this professional development.

 

During the workshop participants will engage in the following topics:

•To become more familiar with the Qualitative criteria for text complexity as defined in the CCLS.

•To practice applying the CCLS criteria for text complexity to evaluate the complexity of a common informational text.

•Possible next steps for Teacher Teams in planning units of study and lessons.

Organizer

Karen Cardinali of CFN 609

During the session we will look at the 8 Mathematics Teaching Practices outlined in the Principles to Actions from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) as a framework for bridging the gap between the adoption of rigorous (CCLS) standards and the enactment of practices (DFFT), policies, programs (GoMath), and actions required for successful implementation of those standards.

We will spend time:

  • Examining teacher and school beliefs about the teaching and learning of mathematics
  • Unpack the 8 Mathematics Teaching Practices (NCTM) as the framework for effective planning and instruction.
  • Engage in a case study about the problem relating the set of eight mathematics teaching practices to the case.
  • Reflect on next steps in strengthening these teaching practices in your own instruction.
  • Identify ways that promoting mathematical discourse in the classrooms help students develop a deep understanding that is critical to their future success in mathematics.
