Use the Two Column Notes to capture any ideas you would like to use.
Unpacking the Standards
Free Write - writing on an assigned topic for a short amount of time (brain dump)
Topic - How do you utilize your Curriculum Guide when planning Mathematics instruction?
We are going to take a deeper look at the Math standards for Fourth quarter. This will help us in implementing our RtI strategies as well as expanding our knowledge of the Math Content in our Curriculum. We will split into groups and work on unpacking one of the standards for Fourth quarter using the template provided.
Each table group will work on one standard from the 4th Quarter
Teams will work together to complete the unpacking template for your standard
Each group will need a recorder and a presenter
Access the 4th grade Math Curriculum Guide and locate your standard
Type the standard in the top box
Discuss and Identify what the standard REALLY means
Misconceptions? Best Practices/Resources? Intervention ideas? Enrichment ideas? Writing Connections? Assessment Ideas?
How can you teach this standard using the C-R-A model?
Plan presentation to the whole group (each group will have up to 10 minutes to present). You may want to model concrete ideas with manipulatives, or representation ideas on chart paper or the white board.
