Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work
About Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at WorkTraditional curriculum and teaching practices are antiquated, do not address the educational needs of students, and are inconsistent from district to district, school to school, and classroom to classroom. This inequity has caused many students to miss out on the opportunity to learn vital knowledge. Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, Leader's Guide gives school leaders the tools to effectively offer mathematics instruction and address the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for mathematics challenge: All students successfully learning rigorous standards for college or career preparatory mathematics.
Much of the material series editor and author Timothy D. Kanold and coauthor Matthew R. Larson present in this book, and the Common Core Mathematics series, has been part of the national discussion on mathematics reform and improvement since the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) release of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards in 1989. This book provides a leader-focused guide to teaching and learning mathematics in grades K 12. The five chapters focus on the five fundamental areas (collaboration, instruction, content, assessment, and intervention) required to prepare every school leader and teacher for successful implementation of CCSS for mathematics.
Chapter 1 discusses the necessity to lead collaborative teams within a PLC to successfully implement the CCSS for mathematics. Chapter 2 focuses on leading the implementation of the CCSS Mathematical Practices, the high-cognitive-demand tasks necessary for procedural fluency and student understanding of the CCSS. Chapter 3 describes leading teachers to embrace the CCSS content the standards, content standard clusters, and domains and the shift to less (fewer standards) is more (deeper rigor with understanding). Chapter 4 introduces the teaching-assessing-learning cycle and describes formative assessment practices and summative assessment instruments leaders can use with teacher teams. Chapter 5 illustrates the required response to intervention model a process that requires students to participate in differentiated instruction or intervention. Each chapter's Extending My Understanding section has resources and tools leaders can use individually or with their collaborative teams to understand and reflect on chapter recommendations.
Using this resource, and the grade-level books in the Common Core Mathematics series for their teacher teams, every school leader can learn valuable information to optimize mathematics teaching and learning.
