Valuable Resources

Sunday, July 16, 2017 8:03 PM | Anonymous

Greetings, fellow educators! I’m excited to be serving as your high school vice president of KCTM. I want to share three valuable resources with you.  First, if your school is considering adopting new textbooks be sure to check out Edreports.org. You’ll find free independent reviews of K-12 instructional materials that focus on alignment to college and career-ready standards and other indicators of high quality as recommended by educators. Achievethecore.org also has a nice coherence map for the standards. Currently high school teachers can choose middle school standards and see vertical connections. I anticipate a more user friendly high school version soon! Another great resource that fosters student engagement are 3 act tasks.  Check out Dan Meyer’s grade level list here. I recommend toothpicks. I’d like to issue a challenge to you as well.  If your local KCTM affiliate is no longer active I urge you to reach out to past officers, get involved, and reignite the passion for mathematics education in your region!
