District/School Leaders

The Standards-Based Classroom:
What to Look For and How to Support Your Teachers

This workshop provides an opportunity for leaders and administrators to understand the basics of standards-based assessment and instruction and problem solving in their schools' classrooms and to support teachers with the process.

In this session, participants will:

  • Discuss what to look for in a standards-based classroom and how to question students about their mathematical problem solving and communication
  • Discuss ways to move mathematical problem solving and communication forward as a whole staff
  • Define the vocabulary of mathematical problem solving, assessment and communication
  • Define the types of assessment that an educator incorporates in her/his teaching
  • Study and apply the Exemplars assessment rubric
  • Link performance tasks and the Exemplars assessment rubric to Common Core grade-level expectations (depth of knowledge, state release items, etc.)
  • Support and engage teachers in discussion around the Common Core Mathematical Practices. Address questions and concerns.

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.
