Resources
Objectives of Year 3:
 Review embedded skills & vocabulary
deconstructed from CCLS (Common
Core Learning Standards) during year 2
 Build sample tasks (questions) for the
CCLS embedded skills that ensures
multiple measures of assessment
 Peer review & build assessment
 Develop a regional scope & sequence by
grade for the Common Core Learning
Standards
 Review criteria for homeschool communications &
report card alignment to
CCLS

us to tackle this
TOGETHER!
We are stronger together than we
are apart…

Sample
questions for the
skills will be
typed in this box
following
questions
as a group
and then
post your
responses
around the
room…
1) What are the
characteristics of quality
2) Describe multiple
measures of assessment.
3) Explain what a ‘Balanced
Assessment’ might include.

Compare the NYS Test Item Grade 5
Math (2005) with the Example
•What are the embedded skills
that the student needed to know for
each question? How does the level
of rigor compare?

 Many textbooks claim to be fully
aligned to CCLS

Core
Aligned
Resources?
Can this be
true?

The Common Core Standards document
address this issue and clearly state that
nothing published is aligned to the level of
both procedural & conceptual
understanding that the CCLS demand
Guidance can be obtained from a
Resources such as: Buckle Down,
Singapore Mathematics, People
Choice, etc.
*Be careful not to spend too much
time in these resources- STAY on
target with being aligned to what the
embedded skills demand…

smaller working groups (paper copies have
been provided in the boxes at the tables)
