Standards-Based Classroom Modeling:
Problem Solving and Formative Assessment for the Common Core

The Classroom Modeling session demonstrates the problem-solving, assessment and communication process across all levels to support the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice.

Components for this workshop can include:

  • A working portfolio lesson that addresses the request of the classroom teacher(s). The lesson may focus on a particular mathematical content area, standard, strategy, multi-step problem and/or using mathematical language.
  • Questioning students about their thinking in order to generate mathematical connections, communication and reasoning, both verbally and in writing
  • Demonstrating differentiated instruction
  • Introducing instructional techniques that promote students' understanding and use of the Mathematical Practices as well as students' higher-order thinking, reasoning and communication skills.
  • Building student confidence and interest in mathematical problem solving and communication
  • Utilizing Exemplars open-ended problems to introduce mathematical content, representations, language and connections, and to encourage mathematical discussion

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