TASC Module 3 - Strategies for Developing Common Core Skills: Math & Science

student and teacher in math classroom

This module contains three separate teacher workshops, intended for Adult Education instructors to learn more deeply and specifically about the math and science components of the national standards and their implications for teaching and learning.  Workshops 7 and 8 engage teachers in discussion and analysis of challenging mathematics tasks and accompanying instructional strategies, and build deeper awareness of the value of the Mathematical Practice standards of the CCSS in supporting the content standards.  Similarly, teachers investigate the tri-fold NGSS framework of cross-cutting concepts, disciplinary core ideas, and science and engineering practices in Workshop 9.  Each workshop in Module 3 includes sample student lessons or problems which teachers do explore and analyze during the workshop, but which they may also use with students directly in their own classrooms.
