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.
Similar to this week's focus on ELA, the purpose for next week's discussion is to support administrators, professional development staff and all those who are implementing the math standards to:
- Learn how the activities embedded within the four professional development units lead to “light bulb” moments. For example, realizing the importance of text complexity or how to craft quality writing prompts.
- Discover how to organize or amend the delivery of the the professional development units or ideas to fit the particulars of a local context.
Please join the conversation to pose your questions and share your experiences thus far with implementing the math standards in your practice. We are fortunate to have access to these national experts and a forum where we can support one another as we move forward in this important work.
The math professional development units are available at the links below.

Looking forward to diving deeply into math next week!
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
