1 CSULA CCSSM-STEM Conference Angelo Segalla March 14, 2014 The Growing Pushback to Common Core Hard Core Professional Development Needed to Push Back the Pushback

2 CCSSM, Déjà Vu all over again... ? As with the New Math …? S = { x | x ε Educational Junkyard} … Just saying…

3 Communist Core is NOT about Education... it is about CONTROL.

8 What to do? Professional Development o Professional Development Professional Development o Professional Development Professional Development o Professional Development Professional Development o Professional Development Professional Development No PD, No CC

9 Professional Development that o leads to PUFM (Liping Ma) Professional Development o concentrates on content—on the math o content  pedagogy Professional Development that o trains teachers to leave FOIL and PEMDAS behind Professional Development that o trains teachers not to start with pizzas to illustrate fractions o trains teachers not to use the LCD in the definition of addition of fractions o trains teachers to encourage kids to add fractions the way we add whole numbers on the number line Professional Development that o trains teachers to motivate “slope” with similar triangles Professional Development that o trains teachers not make manipulatives the centerpiece of multiplication of binomials

10 “People Magazine” Textbooks Lots of pictures... lots of color... Does this distract or enhance learning? This has not changed with the new California textbooks adopted I know, I was there Summer 2013 Do the new adoptions align with CCSSM? No! Professor H.S. Wu calls this a de facto national curriculum TSM (Textbook School Mathematics). o See H. Wu, Bringing the Common Core State Mathematics Standards to Life. American Educator, Fall 2011, Vol. 35, No. 3, pp. 3-13.

11 Adoption of CCSSM does not imply successful implementation Strong PD programs for implementation include well written textbooks and instructional materials (My experience) many (most?) 2013 CA adopted mathematics textbooks and materials for grades 6-8 are not CCSSM aligned

12 Remember...

13 Overall, however, the evidence suggests a positive relationship between teachers’ mathematical knowledge and gains in student achievement.

14 A critical component of this recommendation is that teachers be given ample opportunities to learn mathematics for teaching.

16 A word from Professor MacCallum Main challenge … ensuring teachers are ready to handle a tougher set of requirements for their students. [Teachers] are going to be called on to have a deeper understanding of what the math is all about… For many states, these are simply higher standards than they had before. That in itself is a hard thing.
