9781936765508: Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, High School

How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?

This teacher guide illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics for high school. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it, including deep support for the Mathematical Modeling conceptual category of the CCSS. Comprehensive and research-affirmed analysis tools and strategies will help you and your collaborative team develop and assess student demonstrations of deep conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. You'll also learn how fundamental shifts in collaboration, instruction, curriculum, assessment, and intervention can increase college and career readiness in every one of your students. Extensive tools to implement a successful and coherent formative assessment and RTI response are included.

Benefits

- Discover the five essential paradigm shifts necessary to implement the CCSS for mathematics.
- Receive guidance on forming and sustaining collaborative teams in a Professional Learning Community at Work culture.
- Develop a 'less is more' content mind-set: fewer standards will result in the opportunity of time needed for deeper rigor and conceptual understanding work with students.
- Gain helpful formative assessment strategies for development of student proficiency in the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
- Access dozens of tools, activities, examples, resources, and reproducibles to help teachers and teams analyze, interpret, and implement the common core standard expectations for instruction and assessment.
- Examine the research-affirmed foundation of mathematics content and process standards from 1989 to 2010 and deepen your understanding of the common core expectations.

Dr. Kanold is committed to equity and excellence for students, faculty, and school administrators. He conducts highly motivational, high energy professional development leadership seminars worldwide with a focus on turning vision into realized action that creates greater equity for students through the effective delivery of professional learning communities in the service of mathematics education and improvement.

He is a past president of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics and coauthor of several best-selling mathematics textbooks over several decades. He has served on writing commissions for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and has authored numerous articles and chapters on school mathematics, leadership, and development for education publications.

Gwendolyn Zimmermann, PhD, is the director of mathematics of Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125, a model professional learning community district in Lincolnshire, Illinois.

She has served as journal editor for the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics. She served on the committee that revised the adolescence and young adulthood mathematics standards for the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards and has served as chairperson for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Educational Materials Committee. In 2001, Dr. Zimmermann received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.

John A. Carter, PhD, is the principal of Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. He previously served as the director of mathematics and the assistant principal for teaching and learning at Adlai E. Stevenson. He taught mathematics for nineteen years at Community High School in West Chicago and at Stevenson High School.

As a teacher and professional developer, Dr. Carter's work has focused on teaching mathematics for understanding, student engaged learning, and developing student reasoning. As a presenter and lesson-study facilitator, he regularly works with teachers to examine their instructional practices, further their content knowledge, and improve student achievement.

Dr. Carter has served on the Board of Directors for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics as well as been a member of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics committees, task forces, and writing groups. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching in 1993 and was awarded the T. E. Rine Secondary Mathematics Teaching Award from the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics in 2000.

Mona Toncheff, MEd, is the math content specialist in Phoenix Union High School District, an urban school district in Phoenix, Arizona. She has served in public education for twenty years, twelve of them as a high school mathematics teacher. She received her masters of education in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University and has been the district s mathematics leader for eight years.

As the math content specialist, she oversees mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment at the twelve com¬prehensive and four special highschools in the district. Her experience includes supervising the culture change from teacher isolation to professional learning communities, creating articulated standards and relevant district common assessments, and providing the ongoing professional development for over two hundred high school mathematics teachers regarding best practices, equity and access, technology, and assessment for learning.

Review:

Your assignment: implement the Common Core standards. This book helps you accept the enormity of the challenge, and turn it into opportunities for faculty collaboration that will impact your students. This source provides in-depth background, focused preparation, and professional development tools to support the shift to collaboration. Resources prepare your team for instructional shifts needed to develop students' mathematical practices, implementation of core mathematics, and formative assessments to inform teacher and student decisions daily. The authors give us a team-equity strategy where interventions cannot be optional, which is a useful view of RTI. This will be a well-worn source. I know I will return to it over and over again. --Henry S. Kepner Jr., Professor, Mathematics Education, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Past President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

The Common Core State Standards are a wakeup call for the mathematics education community. Successful implementation of the new content standards, especially the Mathematical Practices, will require teachers to examine their current instructional practices. Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, High School is a powerful and practical tool that will help guide us as we negotiate the necessary changes and begin the process of building mathematically proficient students. --John W. Staley, Coordinator, Secondary Mathematics, Baltimore County Public Schools

The only way to realize the potential of the Common Core Standards is through deep and sustained professional collaboration. This team of superstar authors has deftly combined elements of the most effective math classrooms with powerful collaborative strategies. Their grounded advice can help real communities of educators transform their classrooms into places where every student learns the kind of mathematics we've been advocating for more than two decades. This is not a quick fix, but a road map for lasting change. --Cathy Seeley, Senior Fellow, Charles A. Dana Center, University of Texas at Austin; Past President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
