Here is the link to the 2nd grade curriculum module 3. Please note that it is over 300 pages long. There was a note on Enageny about claiming state aid for the printing of these resources. Please talk to your administrators prior to printing to find out whether or not your building is keeping track of this.
November 26-29, Patrick and I (Erin) will be attending training in Albany on the modules. I just saw in a survey the following information:
November's NTI will focus on the following learning goals that we are asking you to measure your current understanding of in the following questions. At the conclusion of the training, participants attending will receive two exemplar modules which cover:
-Grade 2, Module 3: Place Value, Counting and Comparison of Numbers to 1000
-Grade 5, Module 3: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division of Fractions
This information is typically posted on Engageny during the training. We will take time during the December 6th Elementary Forum to examine these modules. I just wanted to give you a heads up.
We will also be receiving training on the Middle School modules. I don't believe that a full module will be released for 6-8 grade yet, but I have heard that a map of the modules will be provided. Hopefully, we will get some sample/demo lessons, but we will have to wait and see. We'll be sure to pass along the information to you as soon as we know more.
Below are links to specific tools that teachers and principals should have at their disposal as they prepare to implement the Math Common Core standards this year. Below each link is a description of the resource and a quick overview of its usefulness in implementation.
Although the modules were not made available to us, the resources that were seemed to be of high quality and will be extremely helpful to teachers and districts when they are released. They were hopeful to have the 1st module completed within three weeks.
The DRAFTS of the PK-5 Curriculum Map and the Year-Long Modules provides teachers at this level an insight into how the "Story of Units" was developed utilizing the progression approach within and across grade levels.
After some discussion in Albany, we were told that this document would be edited to reflect New York State's specific needs regarding the assessment timeline.
This document is an overview of the "Story of Units" and the theory utilized as the modules are created.
The PK-5 progression document highlights specific grade level key learning targets as they relate to the progression of learning through each successive module.
This document provides insight into what the 8 Mathematical Practices could look like within the "Story of Units" modules that will be released for K-5. This document could be useful for teachers as they begin their lesson planning as well as administrators that are trying to determine what these practices look like for evaluation purposes. Pay close attention to MP 5. The most important tool the students have to use is their brain. Matching an efficient strategy to a problem solving situation is a key idea in MP 5.
