## CCRS Math 203 Assignment and Student Work-WERACE Danbury Adult Ed

with Connie Rivera

CCRS Math 203: Assignments and Student Work

Prerequisite: Certificate of completion for CCRS Math 100s

Providing our students with high-quality resources and instruction aides their development of deep understanding and transferable knowledge. During this session, we will build our capacity to increase the cognitive demand of the assignments we give our students. Please bring your copy of the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Mathematics and three copies of a written assignment or activity aligned to the CCRS which you would consider teaching in an upcoming class.

## CCRS Math 102A & 102B Standards for Mathematical Practice-Waterbury Adult Ed

with Connie Rivera

CCRS Math 102(A & B) Standards for Mathematical Practice builds on work done in CCRS Math 101, participants will experience problems worth puzzling through and analyze the habits of mind required to solve those problems. We will investigate four of the Practices through activities that illustrate the ways students are to engage with the subject matter of the content standards. The skills of complex problem solving, reasoning and proof, precise communication, and making connections will be practiced and discussed. Activities will encourage a deeper understanding of how to implement CCRS in instruction. Participants will create a standards-based lesson plan or draft unit outline that integrates both the Key Instructional Shifts and the Standards for Mathematical Practice with priority content standards.

Assignment: Unit Plan Purpose:

Develop a working understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Examine the Standards for Mathematical Practice when designing instruction

Explore how the Standards for Mathematical Practice influence the CCR content standards and how those standards should be taught

Consider ways and resources to elicit Standards for Mathematical Practice from students

Participants must have completed CCRS Math 101 A&B before attending Math 102 A&B.

## CCRS Math 201 Resource Alignment Workshop-Lyceum, Hartford

with Connie Rivera

CCRS Math 201: Resource Alignment Workshop

Programs should selectively choose 1-2 adult educators who:

* Have received a certificate of completion for CCRS Math 101 and 102

* Will utilize the tools provided in this session to train other staff members in resource alignment and lesson renovation

* Will facilitate the identification of aligned resources (i.e., a resource library, a list of evaluated resources)

* Will bring a resource (currently in use in the program) to practice alignment protocol and a laptop with Wi-Fi capability.

Description: Providing our students with high-quality resources and instruction aides their development of deep understanding and transferable knowledge. During our session, we will build our capacity to evaluate the degree of alignment of instructional materials to the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) in Mathematics. A resource currently in use in participants’ programs, as well the resource provided for a materials fee, will be used. After determining alignment of the resource, we will renovate a lesson from the resource to improve its quality. Please bring a resource currently in use in your program and a laptop with Wi-Fi capability.

Completion Task: A lesson renovation using Mathematics Lesson Plan template

Purpose:

* Deepen understanding of the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS)

* Build capacity to evaluate instructional resources

* Analyze the degree of alignment between common instructional resources and CCRS

* Renovate instructional resources to improve quality

## CCRS Math 202 Lesson Development Workshop-New Haven Adult Ed

with Connie Rivera

Prerequisite: Certificate of completion for CCRS Math 100s

Providing our students with high-quality resources and instruction aides their development of deep understanding and transferable knowledge. During this session, we will build our capacity to identify materials and create lessons aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) in Mathematics. After determining our lesson purpose, we will work in teams to create lessons aligned to the CCRS. Please bring your copy of the standards, the over-sized overview document from the 100 level sessions, a laptop with Wi-Fi capability, and any “lesson sparks” you would like to reference (activity and lesson idea; an interesting image, graph or news piece; etc.).

## Video - CCRS Math (101) A Introduction & Key Instructional Shifts

with ATDN Staff

CCRS Math 101(A) Introduction and Key Instructional Shifts (Video session) Part 1 of 4 videos.

The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education are a set of academic standards that, when met by students, prepare adult learners for success in college, technical training program(s), and work. In this session, participants will become familiar with the standards and how to navigate them. The video will investigate the Key Instructional Shifts mathematics instruction must make in order for students to succeed. The importance of taking the time to delve deeply into the concepts at the heart of mathematics will be illustrated. By making connections between mathematical concepts, activities will encourage ways to see mathematics as more than discrete sets of rules to be memorized.

Purpose:

Introduce the Key Instructional Shifts of the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education

Develop a working knowledge of the Key Instructional Shifts

Explore how the Shifts influence the structure of the CCR content standards and the order in which standards should be taught

Consider how Shifting practice unfolds in the classroom.

## Video - CCRS Math (102) A Standards for Mathematical Practice

with ATDN Staff

CCRS Math 102(A) Standards for Mathematical Practice (video session) Part 3 of 4 videos. Building on work done in the CCRS Math 101 video, participants will experience problems worth puzzling through and analyze the habits of mind required to solve those problems. We will investigate Practices through activities that illustrate the ways students are to engage with the subject matter of the content standards. The skills of complex problem solving, reasoning and proof, precise communication, and making connections will be practiced and discussed. Activities will encourage a deeper understanding of how to implement CCRS in instruction.

Purpose:

Develop a working understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Explore how the Standards for Mathematical Practice influence the CCR content standards and how those standards should be taught

Consider ways and resources to elicit Standards for Mathematical Practice from students

Participants must have completed Math 101A & Math 101B before attending Math 102(A).

## Video - CCRS Math (101) B Key Instructional Shifts

with ATDN Staff

CCRS Math 101(B) Key Instructional Shifts (video) Part 2 of 4 videos. Building on the work of 101(A), participants will become familiar with the standards and how to navigate them. We will continue to investigate the Key Instructional Shifts mathematics instruction must make in order for students to succeed. The importance of taking the time to delve deeply into the concepts at the heart of mathematics will be illustrated. By making connections between mathematical concepts, activities will encourage ways to see mathematics as more than discrete sets of rules to be memorized. The content standards calling for a balance of conceptual understanding, fluency with procedures, and application to real-world and mathematical contexts will be explored. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of how to use standards when planning math instruction.

Purpose:

Develop a working knowledge of the Key Instructional Shifts

Consider how Shifting practice unfolds in the classroom

Examine the Key Instructional Shifts when designing instruction for adult learners

Participants must have completed Math 101(A) before attending Math 101(B).

Building on work of the CCRS Math 102(A) video, participants will experience problems worth puzzling through and analyze the habits of mind required to solve those problems. The video will investigate Practices through activities that illustrate the ways students are to engage with the subject matter of the content standards. The skills of complex problem solving, modeling, precise communication, and making connections will be practiced and discussed.
