Implementing the Common Core in Mathematics: Designing, Supporting, and Monitoring High Quality Instruction

Meeting 26
December 17-18, 2014
Sanger, California

The California Collaborative on District Reform convened in Sanger for a two-day meeeting, Implementing the Common Core in Mathematics: Designing, Supporting, and Monitoring High Quality Instruction. The meeting explored some of the particular challenges facing districts as they embrace the new mathematics standards. Among these are developing an understanding of what instruction should look like in a Common Core environment and finding ways to monitor progress toward that goal, building teacher content knowledge to create quality student learning environments, designing course pathways that enable all students to access and master mathematics content, and navigating the wide array of available instructional materials to most effectively support classroom instruction. Participants received a briefing book of resources and literature on the Sanger context, high quality mathematics instruction, tools for assessing instruction, course access and sequencing, and developing teacher content knowledge. These resources are available below.
