You will notice that there have been a number of changes made to the original documents. As we have discussed with many of you through trainings, we anticipated a change to the Curriculum Map to take into consideration when the NYS 3-8 Assessment is given. Two of the biggest changes occur in grades 3 and 4. We noticed that in the original document that the fraction modules (M6 and M5 respecively) were post-assessment material.
In the updated version of the map, Grade 3 Module 1 was deleted (and those standards spread throughout the other modules) and a new module was introduced in M6 (Represent and Interpret Data). A significant amount of time was then available post-assessment for work with Quadrilaterals and word problems. For Grade 4, some time was taken from M1and M4 and the original M5 (Order and Operations with Unit Fraction and Decimals) was split into 2 Modules (M5 is order and operations with Fractions- Pre Assessment, M6 is now Decimal Fractions- Post Assessment). Reducing time in M1 and M4 allowed for a more time to be spent in Exploring Multiplication in M7.
An annotated Curriculum Map is attached below along with a color-coded (70-20-10) Year-Long Module Overview. You will notice that the NYS Assessment is notated where appropriate and some of the standards post-assessment are underlined in green. The underlined standards represent standards that also appear as pre-assessment standards.
As noted previously, we do recommend that you use the maps as you begin and plan out your year. We have not heard any updates in regards to the release of the modules, themselves but will be sure to keep you updated if and when they become available. We suggest that you utilize the PK-5 Implementation Phase I resources to begin the year to establish and build the expectation of "mathematically thinking" students in your classrooms.
