|"At the heart of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative is the valued learner, a learner with an active voice in his/her own learning. Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) practices and assessment many students' voices have fallen silent.... Valuing is an important underlying theme of interactions in a classroom particularly as we help create an environment of strong mathematical practices." This article consists of five sections: "The Importance of Valuing," "I Notice/I Wonder Classroom Activity," "I Notice/I Wonder Professional Development Activity," "Moving from Checklists to Problem Solving and Perseverance," and "Online Resources." Originally published in the spring, 2013 newsletter of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM).|
