MODEL CONTENT FRAMEWORKS FOR COMMON CORE

http://www.parcconline.org/parcc-content-frameworks

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and
Careers (PARCC) recently released Model Content Frameworks to
support and guide implementation of the Common Core State
Standards (CCSS). Download the Mathematics Model Content
Frameworks (1.3M) here:

http://www.parcconline.org/sites/parcc/files/PARCC%20MCF%20for%20Mathematics_Fall%202011%20Release.pdf

PARCC developed these frameworks, first highlighted in these
pages earlier this summer, through a collaborative state-led
process among state experts and members of the CCSS writing
teams. The August 2011 public review period elicited nearly
1,000 individual comments from K-12 educators, principals,
superintendents, higher education faculty, school board
members, parents, and students.

GEALGEROBOPHYSICULUS

http://evanweinberg.com/

Evan Weinberg teaches algebra, geometry, calculus, robotics,
and other grades 6-12 courses at Hangzhou International School.
His "thoughts on teaching, learning, and the crazy process of
having fun doing both with students" have included

- How China Keeps Me Learning: Part I
- Lens Ray Tracing in Geogebra
- Take Time to Tech - Perspectives After a Flip
- Graphical Systems in Geogebra and Crashing LEGO Robots in
Algebra 2
- Teaching Proofs in Geometry - What I Do
- Math Portfolio - Sharing My Own Story

Inspired by conversations with others, Weinberg first decided
to blog because "sharing and reflecting on my own learning
process is a way to model what learning and reflection looks
like for my students. The fact that I am not being graded on my
work doesn't mean it isn't valuable to reflect on it; in fact,
it makes it that much more meaningful. Making the extra step of
writing down my thoughts will also enable me to look back and
track my progression of thinking over time. Most importantly,
it provides me an easy channel for sharing what I do. If I can
get better at teaching through others' comments, or others can
adapt what I share to their classrooms, it is a
win-win situation."
