In the 12 short months since the ELA versions of The Common Core Companions, Grades K-2 and 3-5, burst on the scene, they’ve already assisted tens of thousands of teachers with the day-to-day “what you do.” Teachers’ one big criticism: what about mathematics? Luckily NCTM past-president Linda Gojak and mathematics coach Ruth Harbin Miles stepped up to the task. The result? That version of the mathematics standards you wish you had.
That version of the 6-8 standards you wish you had Don't spend another minute poring over the standards. Jim Burke has already done the hard work for you with this roadmap of what each standard says, what each standard means, and how precisely to put that standard into practice across English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. Jim clearly lays out: Grades 6-8 standards side by side with key distinctions Different content-area versions of each standard Explanations of each standard, with student prompts Content to cover, lesson ideas, and instructional techniques Glossary and adaptations for ELL students
That version of the 9-12 standards you wish you had If you're a high school teacher, no need to despair. Jim Burke has created a Common Core Companion for you, too. This time positioning the grades 9-10 standards alongside 11-12, it's every bit the roadmap to what each standard says, what each standard means, and how to put that standard into practice across subjects. Jim clearly lays out: - Key distinctions across grade levels - Different content-area versions of each standard - Explanations of each standard, with student prompts - Content to cover, lesson ideas, and instructional techniques - Glossary and adaptations for ELL students
Modelled after Jim Burke’s successful Common Core Companion Series, this book includes a clear explanation of the mathematics within each domain, cluster, and standard and suggested grade level appropriate visual models and representations.
