Reminders & Updates

From LSS

Math Videos

Our wonderful math TOSA, Lynne Haman, has shared two different videos on math performance tasks. The first video has no narration, but it gives the information in written form that the viewer reads. It tells what the performance task is, what it asks students to do, and then it gives the sample fourth grade performance task from SBAC.

The second video is a third grade teacher doing a real world performance task on designing the floor plan with furniture for their bedroom. It is seeing a performance task in action. This type of lesson will help prepare our students for performance tasks, although the SBAC performance tasks will not be as activity based. They are a scenario based, six question format, with questions that build in complexity.
