The Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
videos are designed to support states, schools, and teachers in the
implementation of the CCSS. The videos were created in collaboration
with the states in the Southeast Comprehensive Center region based on
their needs for professional development support for the implementation
of the Common Core State Standards. Each video is an audiovisual
resource that focuses on one specific standard and usually includes
examples/illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of
each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual
standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard
although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.
The Common Core “FlipBooks” are a compilation of research, “unpacked” standards from many states, instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level. The intent is to show the connections to the Standards of Mathematical Practices for the content standards and to get detailed information at each level.
Resources used: Common Core State Standards, NCTM’s Focus In Grades K-8 series, Student Centered Mathematics by J. VandeWalle, Arizona, Ohio and North Carolina department of education “unpacking” of the standards. This “Flip Book” is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. It provides only a sample of instructional strategies and examples. The goal of every teacher should be to guide students in understanding & making sense of mathematics.
