“Habits of Mind”

Exploring The Common Core for Mathematics

with Cherrie Fulton

Sponsored by SERESC

About the Presentation

The Common Core State Standards inspire high achievement in all students by defining the knowledge, concepts and skills that students should attain at each grade level. The “Habits of Mind” standards reflect 21st century skills that will help to create students who are prepared to enter colleges, careers and the global economy. Please join me in a discussion of these practices and how they can be smoothly incorporated into your teaching. This workshop is appropriate for all levels – K-12.

Participants will:

  • Analyze information from presentation

  • Develop questions to encourage mathematical thinking

  • Create a model for use in the classroom to collect evidence of Mathematical Practice Standards

  • Design Learning opportunities that engage students in the Common Core Standards for mathematical practice (Habits of Mind) to develop 21st Century Competencies
