As the 2012-13 school year moves to the spring, all of us at NCSM are preparing many exciting events including our Annual meeting on April 15-17, 2013 in Denver. The keynote address at the conference will be delivered Vicki Phillips, Director of Education, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I hope to see many of you from the Eastern 2 Region at the conference.
As for common core news, I urge you check out the following resources/websites:
Also as you may know, both assessment consortiums (PARCC and SBAC) have released many sample items. For PARCC prototypes, check out: www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes For Smarter Balanced a plethora of items can be found at: www.smarterbalanced.org/sample-items-and-performance-tasks
Also at the NCSM website, you can find many resources by clicking "CCSS" link. One of my favorites is "Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice". Other powerful resources include Inside Mathematics at www.insidemathematics.org and the Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP) at map.mathshell.org.uk/materials
