Giving Teachers the PD They Need and Want

By Adam Baker Topic Curriculum, Teacher Preparation

A few weeks ago, my oldest son got on the bus for his first day of 1st grade, which means he’s trading in his beach towel, bicycle, and popsicle-stained t-shirts for his book bag, pencils, and, hopefully, some clean shirts. It also means my hectic but rewarding summer PD schedule has come to a close. But most of all, it means that I’m filled with optimism and hope, not just for my son and his classmates, but for all the teachers, support staff, and administrators who I’ve worked with over the past four […]

Talking Eureka with NY’s Teachers Union

By Adam Baker Topic Math and Science, Teacher Perspective

I recently attended a New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) meeting in Albany to talk with union representatives and  members about Eureka Math, which is widely  in  use in classrooms across New York. My colleagues (Marianne  Strayton and Catriona Anderson) and I were a little cautious. With so much misinformation about the  Common Core  State Standards circulating in the media and elsewhere, we didn’t quite know what to expect that Saturday morning.

Standards aren’t the same as curriculum. Standards are goals, or grade-level expectations for […]

Math for Life After the Test

By Lynne Munson Topic Curriculum, Math and Science

When do you know you really understand something?  One test is to see if you can explain it to someone else—well enough that they understand it. Great Minds Inc.’s teachers and scholars have written math curriculum for New York students and teachers that routinely requires students to “turn and talk” and explain the math they learned to their peers.

That is because the goal of the curriculum on EngageNY is to produce students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics.  […]
