THIS RESOURCE IS DRAFT FORM! IT WILL BE UPDATED WHEN COMPLETE.
This professional development will walk a school through how to implement 21st Century Skills in their school from a SCHOOL and CLASSROOM level.
The group will work through the school implementation process and set a timeline for implementation, and then based on that timeline, the classroom teachers will plan their implementation.
Please note - the key to successful implementation is NOT time intensive - the key is introducing and then fully implementing the language and skills into your DAILY ROUTINES and classroom life. Once the skills are introduced it should become part of your day and not require set time - it will be part of everything you do!

Algebra Team: Teacher Collaboration
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Algebra teachers, Juliana Jones and Marlo Warburton, have common philosophies and expectations in their algebra classrooms but use their own unique teaching styles and structures to create consistent experiences for students. Collaboration is an important part of that process and allows teachers to provide common learning experiences in their classrooms despite different teaching styles and structures. This video takes a look at the warm-up, lesson, strategies for group work, classroom expectations and routines to discuss commonalities but also identify ways in which each teacher personalizes their classrooms based on their own teaching style and personality.

Welcome to the UnboundEd Mathematics Guide series! These guides are designed to explain what new, high standards for mathematics say about what students should learn in each grade, and what they mean for curriculum and instruction. This guide, the first for Kindergarten, includes three parts. The first part gives a “tour” of the standards for Counting & Cardinality using freely available online resources that you can use or adapt for your class. The second part shows how Counting & Cardinality relate to classification of objects in Kindergarten (K.MD.B). And the third part explains where Counting & Cardinality is situated in the progression of learning in Grades K-2. Throughout all of our guides, we include a large number of sample math problems. We strongly suggest tackling these problems yourself to help best understand the methods and strategies we’re covering, and the potential challenges your students might face.
