What have we done so far?
Math Summit at Lane, Dec., 2011
Attended Louisville conference on Implementing the Common Core State Standards, February, 2012 Sessions on college readiness, assessment, engaging faculty, and challenges in implementation
Developed list of CCSS resources Lane webpage: ODE website on CCSS: Oregon University System CCSS website: OCTM Listserve (contact information) EPIC https://www.epiconline.org/publications/ https://www.epiconline.org/publications/
Curriculum alignment project College faculty from Lane CC, Tillamook Bay CC, Rogue CC, Portland CC, Umpqua CC, Portland State University Compared standards in Algebra and Functions in the CCSS to their Math 111 courses
Participated in Illustrative Math Project, Summer, 2012 Directed by Dev Sinha, University of Oregon K-12 and college faculty worked together exploring the CCSS Special emphasis on Standards for Mathematical Practice
Collaborating for Success with the Common Core State Standards 10/12/12 at Lane Community College Eugene, OR 8:00am-4:00pm Additional details to follow soon! 6 CPDUs! Save the Date!
What have we learned?
1.Its important to develop a work plan early on. 2.Maintaining frequent communication with participants is vital. 3.You need to create and maintain contact lists.
4.Continue promoting the work through presentations. 5.Keep in mind possible compensation needs. 6.Alignment work is more challenging than we anticipated.
What questions should you keep in mind about collaboration?
Do students in our area transition seamlessly from high school to college/university? Are our college faculty members well informed about the CCSS and its implementation? Do we have strong connections between our K-12 schools and the local colleges and universities? Would our students benefit from the use of common expectations and assessments?
