On March 5th, 2014 Dana and Correia Math teacher will come together to watch Mindy Shacklett (San Diego County Office of Education) teach a 5th grade Math lesson and an 8th grade Math lesson (one at each site). Teachers will travel to both sites that day in order to see a Common Core Math Performance Task taught in a real classroom.
Not only will they see this lesson but they will engage in pre-lesson conversations about the planning of the lesson and how to create a lesson around teaching math tasks. After the lesson that was planned is taught, teachers from both sites will debrief what they saw and how they can apply it. They also will have the opportunity to be exposed to what Math looks like at the different grade levels so sequencing (vertical alignment) can be discussed closer to the end of the year for next year.
