A teacher asked me for advice on how I was preparing to teach NYS Common
Core Algebra 1 this fall. I thought this topic would be a good discussion
point for the group. Here's my two cents:



You need to read A Story of Functions, PARCC standards breakout, any PARCC
documents that give details, such as assessment breakouts (even though they
are not NYS assessments), and details of the difference between Alg 1 and
Alg 2. PARCC progression documents won't tell you what is in Alg 1 but are
the best descriptions I have seen what the standards encompass for HS
topics. No crosswalk is available from the 2005 standards to the Core. No
glossary is available although the modules should include vocabulary. (Will
they have definitions? Probably but the actual regents tests are not
written by the module writing company so expect conflicts in this area as
well as other areas.)



You should also be familiar with PARCC standards for gr 6 - 8 so you will
know previous skills.



Having said all that-I am waiting for the release of the Algebra 1 modules.
NYSED has *promised* they will be available by 31 July. An overview of
Module 1 is available on engageny.org. It lists lessons and gives sample
assessments but remember the modules and the new regents are NOT written by
the same company so the sample assessments are not meant to be
'regents-like'. Full modules are expected to include scripted lessons,
homework assignments, everything to teach the course.



How to review for both the common core regents by the beginning of June and
the regular Algebra 1 regents mid-June: I'm still thinking about this
conundrum.
