Implementing the Common Core as Constellations of Content and Practice Standards
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics were written to bring coherence to the teaching of K-12 mathematics. The authors organized the standards in terms of developing mathematical themes as students go through the grades. Yet, if the Common Core is interpreted by school districts as a set of discrete standards to be covered each in isolation, we return again to a disjointed, shallow curriculum. On the other hand, if we think in terms of sets of lessons as engaging students in a constellation of content standards and associated mathematical practices, we can maintain that coherence intended by the authors. In this talk, we will present one example of a constellation of content and practice standards related to the Common Core's emphasis on the properties of the operations in the elementary grades. We will illustrate this constellation with samples of student work, descriptions of lesson sequences, and classroom video. Deborah Schifter is a principal research scientist at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC). Virginia Bastable became the Director of the SummerMath for Teachers Program at Mount Holyoke College in 1993 after teaching middle school and high school mathematics for more than twenty years. Susan Jo Russell was a classroom teacher and staff developer in elementary schools in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. She is currently at the Education Research Collaborative at TERC, where she has directed research and development projects in mathematics education for over 25 years. Deborah Schifter, Virginia Bastable, and Susan Jo Russell have collaborated on major projects since 1993. Together they produced the Developing Mathematical Ideas professional development series, which includes seven case-based modules. They worked on the second edition of Investigations in Number, Data, and Space, developing the early algebra strand for the curriculum. Their recent book, Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra: Strategies for Building Algebraic Thinking in the Elementary Grades, uses extensive classroom examples to support teachers in integrating a focus on noticing, articulating, representing, and justifying general claims into their core arithmetic instruction. The book emphasizes how both students who are struggling with grade-level computation and students who are excelling with grade-level computation can engage in and benefit from this focus. They are currently working on the project, Using Routines as an Instructional Tool for Developing Elementary Students' Conceptions of Proof. Presider: Susan Birnie, NCSM Regional Director, S1

Practicing the Common Core State Standards: What is the Work of Teaching?
The Common Core State Standards call for all students to master core mathematical practices, such as representing ideas, evaluating arguments, using language precisely, and using mathematical structure. These are crucial to the development of students' mathematical skill and proficiency. For students to develop skill with these mathematical practices, instruction must explicitly support such learning. This presentation will examine in detail three core teaching competencies that are fundamental to helping students develop proficiency with mathematical practices: (1) making the practices explicit and learnable; (2) establishing norms and routines that support mathematical practice; and (3) assessing students' capabilities with mathematical practices. The session will use artifacts of practice, including video, curriculum, and student work. It will also be designed to be interactive, so that participants are actively engaged in considering. Deborah Loewenberg Ball is the William H. Payne Collegiate Professor in education at the University of Michigan, and an Arthur F. Thurmau Professor. She currently serves as dean of the School of Education and as director of a new organization called TeachingWorks. She taught elementary school for more than 15 years, and continues to teach mathematics to elementary students each summer. Ball's research focuses on the practice of mathematics instruction, and on the improvement of teacher training and development. She is an expert on teacher education, with a particular interest in how professional training and experience combine to equip beginning teachers with the skill and knowledge needed for responsible practice. Dr. Ball has served on several national and international commissions and panels focused on policy initiatives, including the National Mathematics Advisory Panel (appointed by President George W. Bush) and the National Board for Education Sciences (appointed by President Barack Obama). Presider: Sandie Gilliam, Colorado Springs
