Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Summer Institute Sessions

Problem Solving for the Common Core: Performance Tasks, Rubrics and Anchor Papers, K–2

  • Cost: $225
  • Date: May 24th
  • Time: 8:30 to 4:00
  • Presenter: Deb Armitage, M.Ed.
  • Location: ACES/PDSI, 205 Skiff Street, Hamden, CT

Through the lens of problem solving, gain a firm understanding of methods to support and guide the transition to the Common Core. This session focuses on:

  • The appropriate instructional shifts and tools necessary to effectively implement the CCSS.
  • The underlying concepts and processes behind this teaching/learning approach.
  • The essentials of performance-based assessment and instruction to support the CCSS for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice.

Exemplars math tasks, rubrics and anchor papers are incorporated throughout the workshop. The vocabulary for problem solving is defined and problem-solving strategies are explored. Mathematical communication and application of mathematical concepts across math strands will be shown. Discussion topics also include: differentiating instruction, encouraging student involvement and developing self-assessment practices to improve student performance.

Here's What People Are Saying

Embedding Common Core aligned Exemplars tasks into our units of study has strengthened teachers understanding of the Common Core Learning Standards while improving student performance. Significant growth in student achievement has taken place across the grades in the Mathematical Practices ... even our youngest students do the work of real mathematicians to represent and solve authentic real-world problems.
