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.

The Broad Agenda

  • 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 NCTM-based scoring rubric
  • Link the Exemplars tasks and scoring rubric to state grade-level expectations (depth of knowledge, state release items, etc.)

Here's What People Are Saying

Our school subscribes to the Exemplars Library. I find the formative tasks aligned to the Common Core are strong and can be easily embedded in any curriculum. Having a more accessible and more challenging version of each task provides teachers' support as they have the resources to problem solve across different levels of understanding in their classrooms … Students are enjoying the tasks and are demonstrating a deeper understanding of the underlying concepts of the standards as they apply formal math language, accurate representations and connections.
