Presentation at NTI

Supporting Change in the Secondary Mathematics Classroom 

Principals, Administrators, Network Teams

Sequence of Sessions

Overarching Objectives of this October 2014 Network Team Institute

  • Participants will be able to identify, practice, and use best instructional moves and scaffolds for chosen common core standards. 

High-Level Purpose of this Session

  • Participants will examine the use of the Switch framework as a guide for achieving change in mathematics instruction.
  • Participants will examine a protocol that teachers can use to develop a cycle of plan → teach → assess → analyze  in order to develop extended interventions for students in grades 6-9.

Related Learning Experiences

  • This session is part of a sequence of sessions designed for principals and other school leaders.  Earlier sessions (available on EngageNY.org) have examined scaffolding to support student learning and the development of instant and extended interventions.
  • The planning protocol described in this session is more fully illustrated and practiced in The Number System:  Crafting Teaching Sequences for Extended Interventions for Grades 6-9,  a related learning experiences for teachers.

Session 1: Collaborate and illuminate best practices for implementation of the math modules

Session 2: Guided practice to analyze student work from Grade 8, Module 7. Small group collaboration to develop teaching sequences for intervention

Session 3: Collaborate to refine plans for implementation of the math modules and to develop site-based strategic plans for professional development
