KRESA Math PD: Implementing CCSS for Math

September 20, 2011

8:30am - 3:30pm

Kalamazoo RESA

This one-day workshop has been developed for “FIRST-TIMERS”: educators who did NOT attend the Common Core State Standards for Math roll-out sessions on September 22, 2010 OR March 22, 2011.

The Common Core State Standards for K-12 Mathematics were released in June 2010. Michigan is requiring that all schools begin to implement the Common Core starting in the 2011-12 school year.

But where does that leave us?

District or school teams of teachers, instructional leaders, and administrators should attend this one-day workshop to begin to answer these important questions:

  • What are the Common Core State Standards for Math? Why do we have them?
  • How does the Common Core for Math compare to Michigan’s GLCE and HSCE for math?
  • When will we be expected to fully implement the Common Core?
  • What type of PD is available for us to be trained in the Common Core?
  • What resources will we need to implement the Common Core?
  • How will the Common Core affect assessments like the MEAP and MME?
  • What will we have to change? What will stay the same?
Information and resources will be shared. Teams will work together to determine the impact of the Common Core and begin to develop (or extend) a district- or school-wide strategic plan for implementation.
