Common Core Mathematics in PLC at Work, Grades K-2 by Timothy D. Kanold

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for mathematics improve on current state standards and provide a consistent framework for teaching and learning practices. They define the knowledge and skills necessary to develop mathematical proficiency and succeed at all levels of education. Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work™, Grades K-2 guides elementary teachers in breaking away from past practices and collaboratively embracing five essential paradigms (collaboration, instruction, content, assessment, and intervention) to successfully implement the CCSS for mathematics.

This comprehensive resource for K-2 teachers offers:

Straightforward descriptions of the five essential paradigms

Practical guidance for forming and sustaining collaborative teams in a PLC culture

Dozens of tools, resources, activities, examples, and reproducibles to help teams analyze and interpret the standards

Thorough appendices including the Standards for Mathematical Practice and Standards for Mathematical Content
