CCSSM: Keeping Teaching and Learning Strong
Russell, Susan Jo
Teaching Children Mathematics, v19 n1 p50-56 Aug 2012
The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) are, at the same time, promising and problematic. Some educators hope that the adoption and implementation of this document can result in a deeper, more coherent curriculum for all students. Others are concerned that it will push schools and teachers to be even more focused than they have been on high-stakes tests and that it will be implemented as a list of items to "cover" rather than as a lattice on which strong teaching and learning must be woven. To support mathematics educators as they consider implications of the CCSSM for instruction and assessment, "Teaching Children Mathematics" launched a series of articles beginning in the February 2012 issue. This concluding installment concentrates on the implementation of the eight Standards of Mathematical Practice and the constellations of Practices and Standards. (Contains 2 figures.)
