common core is NOT NOT NOT about "what's in!" There is a curriculum map and there are the PARCC frameworks and the common core standards. There will be modules by the end of the summer (I know that's awhile off, but try being a k8 teacher who did common core already this year without any modules and with a testwe really can't complain) To prepare for next year, we should NOT be waiting for a "what's in" list  I seriously doubt there will be one and we should not be focused on creating one  we should be figuring out HOW we are going to change our delivery so that students have to the opportunity to think about mathematics every single day  think and reason  not memorize 'steps'. There is a test maptype document on engageny that was handed out to NTI members that does show differences between some integrated algebra questions and sample common core test questions. There is also the module overview for module 1 for algebra. Both of these were posted previously on this list serve in the past month. Both are very important summer reading for every single math teacher in the state (including those who won't be teaching algebra next yearyou need to see where they've been!) Reading the grades 68 standards would also be a crucial thing to do if you have not already done so. Liz

I agree with almost all of the statements above. This exam did not represent the urriculum well. The students (and teachers) have every right to feel frustrated hen we spend a large amount of time on IMPORTANT topics, and they don't end up n the test! Where is the graphing? Where is the system of linear equations? onsecutive integer problem? Will the Common Core make this better for next year? We still need a "what's n?" list for next year. Any input?
