Confrey (2007)

“Developing sequenced obstacles and challenges for
students…absent the insights about
meaning

that derive
from careful study of learning, would be unfortunate and
unwise.”




CCSS, p. 4

“…
the development of these Standards began with
research
-
based learning progressions

detailing what is
known today about how students’ mathematical
knowledge, skill,
and understanding
develop over time.”

Look at the grade level above and grade level below (to see the
context).


Make notes that reflect a logical progression, increasing
complexity.


As a table group share a vertical progression (bottom

up or
top
-
down) on chart paper.


Summary and/or representation of how the
concept of the use of numbers grows
throughout your grade band.


Easy for others to interpret or understand.


Visual large enough for all to see.


More than just the letters and numbers of
the standards


include key words or
phrases.


Display posters side
-
by
-
side and in
order on the wall.


Begin at the grade band you studied.
Read the posters for your grade band.


Discuss similarities and differences
between the posters.


Establish a clear vision for your grade
band.



As a table group, consider your
journey through the 2010 ACOS as
you studied the concept of the use of
numbers K
-
12.


What did you learn?


What surprised you?


What questions do you still have?



Know what to expect about students’ preparation.


More readily manage the range of preparation of
students in your class.


Know what teachers in the next grade expect of
your students.


Identify clusters of related concepts at grade level.


Clarity about the student thinking and discourse
to focus on conceptual development.


Engage in rich uses of classroom assessment.
