reIgniteJoCo 2019 CvHS has ended
Reminder you will be building your own credit at the close of this event.  Each session will count 1.2 hours towards your credit.  You will collect certificates throughout the event to submit in MyLearningPlan at the conclusion of reIGNITE 2019. Digital Sessions will require the Digital Learning Artifact: bit.ly/jcpsdlcartifact.

Note: If you are attending with your PLC members you might consider signing up for the same reIGNITE Calibration session (Learn 1) so that you can have common language in the coming year.

Elementary School Leaders' Influence on Standards-based Mathematics AVAILABLE

Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience (Elementary, Secondary, Other):

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
School leaders will understand their role in the implementation of Standards-based mathematics instruction. 

Have you underestimated the complexity of Standards-based mathematics instruction?  Could it be hindering student growth at your school?  
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study for K-8 Mathematics set expectations for the content and skills students should master by the end of each grade and the practices in which they should use regularly, but these standards do not include directions on how to teach to meet the expectations. In order to successfully provide this type of instruction, teachers need to have a deep understanding of both the content and how students understand and learn the content (Ball, 2003; Clements & Sarama, 2004; Carpenter, Fennema, Peterson, Chiang & Loef, 1989). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics supported the creation and implementation of the common mathematics Standards and acknowledged that the shift would take time (NCTM, 2014; Hirsch, Lappan, & Reys, 2012). This means the implementation of Standards-based instruction requires training as well as time for teachers to develop new instructional strategies. In this session, school leaders will learn how to support Standards-based mathematics instruction to promote teacher and student growth. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
This session will incorporate lecture and discussion facilitated through mathematics education research and student work samples.
