Are your mathematics scores where you would like them to be? Instructional leaders are invited to explore tools designed to determine the extent of implementation of the Kentucky Core Academic Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice within the whole school mathematics program.

At a daylong workshop on Nov. 19, become familiar with the Instructional Implementation Sequence: Attaining the CCSS Mathematical Practices Engagement Strategies designed to support teachers as they incorporate the Standards for Mathematical Practices into their classroom instruction.

The goals of the workshop, from the Partnership Institute for Math & Science Education Reform, are to:

  • Identify barriers to meaningful change within the mathematics classroom.
  • Engage mathematics leaders with the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Equip mathematics leaders with strategies and tools for progressively changing instructional strategies in order to make progress meaningful and manageable.

The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET at the University of Kentucky/Lexmark Center for Innovation in Math and Science Education, 1737 Russell Cave Road, Lexington. The $160 fee includes the book and all materials.

Ready to use resources:

  • Connections and alignment to the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES)
  • The Common Core Mathematics Standards – Transforming Practice Through Team Leadership by Ted Hull
  • Standards of Student Practice in Mathematics Proficiency Matrix, Instructional Implementation Sequence: Attaining the CCSS Mathematical Practices Engagement Strategies, and Teacher/Student Classroom Tally Sheets.

Districts will have the option to add one or two days of onsite visits by consultants to support leadership in the use of Teacher/Student classroom tally sheets. More information on this option will be available at the Nov.19 training.
