Description of Practice Improving problem-solving in Middle School students using Complex Performance Assessment Tasks designed and implemented through cross content collaboration.  Utilize this evidence of student learning to adapt teaching and learning to meet the immediate learning needs of our diverse population of students.  Teach perseverance with continuing practice. Two Examples o 1. MARS tasks in the classroom @ E. A. Hall o 2. CaMSP collaborative lesson (% of a Number)

Links to Common Core Instructional Shifts Eight Mathematical Practices 1. Making sense of problems and persevering in solving them (SMP#1). 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively (SMP#2). 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others (SMP#3). 4. Model with mathematics (SMP#4). 5. Use appropriate tools strategically (SMP#5) 6. Attend to precision (SMP#6). 7. Look for and make use of structure (SMP#7). 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning (SMP#8).

Tips on Implementation (Lessons Learned) The most effective use of formative assessment occurs on a daily basis. Use Socratic seminars! Quit prompting and scaffolding every step of the way – provide a foundation for autonomy. Be patient, students will flounder at first and then gradually gain skills on how to analyze a challenge, utilize prior learning, and implement a purposeful solution to a problem. Collaborate often w/ other teachers and share:  English language skills  Art – many common factors with math  Phy. Ed. – oppty list: statistics, geometry

Resources & Tools for getting started The ‘Kithen sink’:  SVMI/Mars tasks  Problems of the month  Videos/flipped classroom Math coaches Enroll in training (e.g. CaMSP, Critical Thinking) Utilize ‘vaulted’ lessons Other teachers & coaches Contact Information Randy Braun E.A.
