2008-2009 1 1 Building a Strong Foundation Scope and Sequence Overview
2008-2009 22 Participants will become familiar with … the process involved in developing a research- based scope and sequence. how to provide feedback on the scope and sequence draft using an online survey. Goals Building a Strong Foundation
2008-2009 33 Building a Strong Foundation Group norms Understand that those who work, learn. Look for solutions, not blame. Phrase questions for the benefit of everyone. Be honest. Recognize that everyone has expertise. Challenge ideas. Share talk time.
2008-2009 44 Building a Strong Foundation The collaborative writing team has produced a draft scope and sequence of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics arranged in instructional order by quarter including… Instructional unit of study titles. Standards for Mathematical Content and Standards for Mathematical Practice for each instructional unit. Number of days suggested for instruction and assessment of each unit of study.
2008-2009 55 Building a Strong Foundation Curriculum Framework Documents The collaborative writing team has produced a draft scope and sequence of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics arranged in instructional order including… Instructional unit titles Content and Practice standards for each instructional unit Number of days for instruction and assessment
2008-2009 66 Building a Strong Foundation Why have a common scope and sequence?
2008-2009 77 Building a Strong Foundation What the research says
2008-2009 88 Building a Strong Foundation What does “guaranteed and viable” mean?
10 Building a Strong Foundation Curriculum: Alignment
2008-2009 11 Building a Strong Foundation Studied the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Studied researched-based materials for information on student learning and content development. Worked collaboratively in content groups. Studied other districts’ scope and sequences. How did the writing team develop the scope and sequence?
