KRESA Math PD: Analyzing Your Textbook In Light of the Common Core

October 6, 2011

8:30am - 3:30pm

Kalamazoo RESA

  • Are you curious about how well your current textbooks align to the Common Core State Standards for Math
  • (CCSS-M)?
  • Are you part of a textbook adoption committee charged with selecting new math textbooks in the next several
  • years
  • Do you need more information about what to “look for” in a quality math textbook in light of the CCSS-M?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, register to attend this one-day workshop to explore the newly released mathematics curriculum analysis tools. The Mathematics Curriculum Analysis Project has developed a set of THREE mathematics curriculum analysis tools that will allow K-12 mathematics textbook adoption committees, school administrators, and K-12 mathematics teachers to analyze textbooks and other curriculum materials with regard to their
alignment to the CCSS-M.
You will be trained on how to use the three curriculum analysis tools. You will also receive the User’s Guide to explain how to use the tools once you’re back in your school. The three tools include:
  1. a Mathematics Content tool focused on determining the extent to which curriculum materials convey important mathematics content sequences across grade levels in the CCSS-M;
  2. a Mathematics Practices tool to determine if curriculum materials support teachers and engage students in the Mathematical Practices of the CCSS-M;
  3. and a tool that determines the extent to which the curriculum materials support teachers in the areas of equity, assessment, and technology.
