News from the Eastern 2 Region
Eric Milou, Eastern 2 Regional Director
As the 2012-13 school year comes to a close and the summer arrives, all of us at NCSM are preparing many exciting events for the fall of 2013. Note the NCSM fall leadership seminar is in our region (Baltimore, MD) on October 16, 2013 which will precede the NCTM regional conference. You can register and find more information at: www.mathedleadership.org/events/fallseminars.html
I hope to see many of you from the Eastern 2 Region there.
As for common core news, I urge you check out the following resources/websites:
And as you may know, both assessment consortiums (PARCC and SBAC) have released many sample items.
For PARCC prototypes, check out: www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes
For Smarter Balanced a plethora of items can be found at: www.smarterbalanced.org/sample-items-and-performance-tasks
Also at the NCSM website, you can find many resources by clicking "CCSS" link. One of my favorites is "Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice". Other powerful resources include Inside Mathematics at www.insidemathematics.org and the Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP) at map.mathshell.org.uk/materials
State events being held in our region are listed in the calendar section of this page. If you don't see your event listed, please just contact me () and I will get it listed for you.
Finally, please reach out to your colleagues and INVITE them to join NCSM. Help us build our mathematics education leadership community.
