On Friday, October 2nd Jonily Zupancic, Minds on Math, met with our primary and intermediate staff to continue our vertical alignment efforts with the common core state standards for mathematics. This past month, Jonily has provided professional development on the mathematical practices of the CCSS, guided our teachers through identifying the five essential mathemathical components of their grade level, and assisted our teachers in revising their existing pacing guides for richer mathematical experiences in the classroom. The focus of today’s professional development was on the art of creating questions and rich differentiated tasks for all learners. >>view more
