News from the Eastern 2 Region
Eric Milou, Eastern 2 Regional Director
As the 2013-14 moves in the winter season, all of us at NCSM are preparing for the spring and the NCSM annual meeting in New Orleans. Check out the online planner, the conference preview, and registration at: www.mathedleadership.org/events/conferences/LA/index.html
I hope to see many of you from the Eastern 2 Region there.
As for common core news, 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 sample online test can be found at: sbacpt.tds.airast.org/student/
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
