    ┬┐Using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics With Gift

    “Using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics With Gifted and Advanced Learners” has six contributing authors and is edited by Susan K. Johnsen, Ph.D. and Linda J. Sheffield, Ph.D.  The audience for this book is teachers and administrators who work with gifted and advanced children.  Its hope is to help the people who work with these kids to implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) that will affect grades K-12.
    The purpose of the CCSS is that it is to help with curriculum that will help students develop the skills and learn the concepts that will be required is they are going to be able to function and compete in the 21st century.  
    This book would most likely not hold the attention of people who are not in education, but for those who are, this book would grab their attention.  It begins with explaining what CCSS is and how it will affect gifted and advanced students.  But it does just “tell” the reader, it also provides great sample activities that the teacher could use to enhance her curriculum.  An example of this can be found on page 22 where the page starts off with: Subject: Math Learning Progressions: Patterns.  Followed by: Domains: Operations and Algebraic Thinking (3rd & 5th); Functions (8th & High School).  Then concrete examples are broken down for 3rd, 5th, 8th, and high school grades.  
    Also included is a possible timeline for implementing the CCSS locally.  It is broken down into three columns: Task, Person(s) Responsible, and When.  In the first row, the Task is: Know and understand the CCSS for Mathematics.  Under Person(s) Responsible: All school personnel.  Under When: August-September.  This goes on until you get to July and have to start over.  There are also resources to help implement CCSS.
    This book is an excellent resource for teachers and administrators who work with gifted and advanced learners.  With the sample activities, timelines, resources and more, the teacher/administrator will feel more confident that they are teaching these children to excel in the 21st century.
