Guest Discussion: PD Materials for Math Begins Today

Hello colleagues, It's great hearing from ELA coaches Jane, Rachel, and Meesha this week, and they'll be with us through Sunday 4/12/15, so don't hesitate to ask your questions of them. Thank you, ladies!

Beginning next Monday April13, 2015, we will be hosting our next week-long discussion "A Deep Dive: What’s behind the New Professional Development Materials for Mathematics CCR Standards?" Our discussion leaders will be national coaches Kaye Forgione and Fabio Milner.

Reminder: LINCS CCRS Event Next Week!

Event Title: A Deep Dive: What’s Behind the New Professional Development Materials for Mathematics CCR Standards?

Event Type: Online Discussion

Date(s): April 13-17, 2015

Greetings LINCS Community,

Hope that you are participating in the current ELA/Literacy CCR Standards discussion. Up for next week is a deep dive into Mathematics!

Who were Ada Lovelace, Frances Kelsey, and Maria Mitchell?

Women’s History Month is commemorated in March.  Here is an idea for an early start: integrate research, reading and writing skills with investigations of women in science.  Many people recognize the name of Marie Curie and (perhaps) Rachel Carson.  How about some of these other women, among whom are a pioneer in computer science, the physician who prevented the approval of thalidomide usage in the United States, a pioneering code-breaker during World War II, the person who established the field of industrial engineering, and many Nobel Prize laureates.

New Resources: CCR Standards-Based Professional Development

Dear LINCS Community members,

New professional development materials are now available to support your effective implementation of college and career readiness (CCR) standards. There are eight professional development units—four for English language arts/literacy and four for mathematics.  Each replicates a key activity offered during the CCR Standards Implementation Institutes, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education in 2014.

Wind Chill and Frostbite

What is “wind chill”, and how is it calculated?  Check out this resource from the National Weather Service.  There is a wind chill calculator and a graph showing wind chill as a function of temperature (Fahrenheit) on the X-axis and wind speed on the Y-axis. The graph gives a us a “frostbite indicator”, by which people can learn how long it is safe to be outdoors in wind chill conditions. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/winter/windchill.shtml

Winter storms

Happy New Year!  The year 2015 has started out in the United States with a lot of cold weather.  “Winter Storm Gorgon” has swept across the country from the western Cascade mountain range to the New Jersey shore.  (And we are not alone: there is also “Huda”, a winter snow and sand storm in the Middle East, affecting countries such as Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon.) 

There are many online videos about Storm Gorgon, with weather maps and commentaries.  Have you been affected by the weather?  Have you used weather in instructional settings?  Meanwhile, stay safe!

Polar resources and discussion

In April 2014, the LINCS Science community hosted a two-week discussion about polar science, research, and resources.  All four of our guest scientists and educators have worked extensively in the Arctic regions.  This region is back in the news with the recent publication of the NOAA annual “Arctic Report Card”.  To gain access to our discussion threads about the experiences of these scientists in the Arctic and for more resources, please check out
