Lisa Krohn, Director of Teaching and Learning, challenged teachers at Johnson Creek Elementary School to rethink the traditional format of student learning and assessment and, focus on how to create  successful learners. Students are now grouped by academic readiness instead of age. Teachers transitioned from being grade level teachers (e.g. 3rd grade teacher) to “Focus Area Advisors” specializing in math or literacy. The workshop model allows students to be active learners engaging in formative assessment practices including conferring, journaling, and computer adaptive programs to name a few.  Read more about these practices in the module.

 The Senior Exit Portfolio Project (SEP) at West Salem High School was created to provide evidence that its graduates were career and college ready. The self-directed, active learning experience spans the entire senior year and includes the selection of an area of interest, a research paper, development of a project, maintenance of a portfolio of work and work artifacts, and a presentation of the research and project to a panel of community members.  Each student is assigned a mentor related to the field of study to help link the research to practical application. The mentor connection and the use of a community panel has encouraged deep community participation and investment in the educational process. The SEP also provides an opportunity for full staff collaboration, promoting vertical integration of learning standards across all grade levels and content areas.

 At Lake Superior Intermediate School, grade level teams meet weekly and quarterly to dig into student data. Each grade level created a data wall to monitor student progress. The data analysis process and discussions drive decision making about student learning and classroom instruction. High quality data is essential to determine which students need more practice and/or intervention/enrichment (PIE) on each priority standard for both ELA and Math. The teams use universal screening data, running records for reading, common formative assessments, and teacher observations to ensure multiple sources of data present a complete picture of student learning and guide instructional adjustments.Read more about these practices in the module.

In order to integrate Universal Design for Learning (UDL) at all levels, a series of "Try Its" (3-4 week periods to implement UDL strategy) were scheduled throughout the year with cohort groups of teachers to increase student engagement and reach more of their  students.    Following each try it period, the cohort team reviewed the resultant data.  After their first year, cohorts regrouped to discuss UDL practices and how they worked in the classroom. In year two, a second cohort was developed to follow the same path. Cohort 1 trained Cohort 2, and answered questions. Members of the two cohorts were then strategically mixed with other staff members to help them understand the UDL work and process.  Read more about these practices in the module.

Students connect polynomial arithmetic to computations with whole numbers and integers.  Students learn that the arithmetic of rational expressions is governed by the same rules as the arithmetic of rational numbers.  This unit helps students see connections between solutions to polynomial equations, zeros of polynomials, and graphs of polynomial functions.  Polynomial equations are solved over the set of complex numbers, leading to a beginning understanding of the fundamental theorem of algebra.  Application and modeling problems connect multiple representations and include both real world and purely mathematical situations.

Module 2 builds on students’ previous work with units and with functions from Algebra I, and with trigonometric ratios and circles from high school Geometry. The heart of the module is the study of precise definitions of sine and cosine (as well as tangent and the co-functions) using transformational geometry from high school Geometry. This precision leads to a discussion of a mathematically natural unit of rotational measure, a radian, and students begin to build fluency with the values of the trigonometric functions in terms of radians. Students graph sinusoidal and other trigonometric functions, and use the graphs to help in modeling and discovering properties of trigonometric functions. The study of the properties culminates in the proof of the Pythagorean identity and other trigonometric identities.

Algebra II Module 3: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

In this module, students synthesize and generalize what they have learned about a variety of function families.  They extend the domain of exponential functions to the entire real line (N-RN.A.1) and then extend their work with these functions to include solving exponential equations with logarithms (F-LE.A.4).  They explore (with appropriate tools) the effects of transformations on graphs of exponential and logarithmic functions.  They notice that the transformations on a graph of a logarithmic function relate to the logarithmic properties (F-BF.B.3).  Students identify appropriate types of functions to model a situation.  They adjust parameters to improve the model, and they compare models by analyzing appropriateness of fit and making judgments about the domain over which a model is a good fit.  The description of modeling as, “the process of choosing and using mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to make decisions,” is at the heart of this module.  In particular, through repeated opportunities in working through the modeling cycle (see page 61 of the CCLS), students acquire the insight that the same mathematical or statistical structure can sometimes model seemingly different situations.

Students build a formal understanding of probability, considering complex events such as unions, intersections, and complements as well as the concept of independence and conditional probability.  The idea of using a smooth curve to model a data distribution is introduced along with using tables and techonolgy to find areas under a normal curve.  Students make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies.  Data is used from random samples to estimate a population mean or proportion.  Students calculate margin of error and interpret it in context.  Given data from a statistical experiment, students use simulation to create a randomization distribution and use it to determine if there is a significant difference between two treatments.

Lisa Krohn, Director of Teaching and Learning, challenged teachers at Johnson Creek Elementary School to rethink the traditional format of student learning and assessment and, focus on how to create  successful learners. Students are now grouped by academic readiness instead of age. Teachers transitioned from being grade level teachers (e.g. 3rd grade teacher) to “Focus Area Advisors” specializing in math or literacy. The workshop model allows students to be active learners engaging in formative assessment practices including conferring, journaling, and computer adaptive programs to name a few.Read more about these practices wuthin the module.

Geometry Module 1: Congruence, Proof, and Constructions
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Module 1 embodies critical changes in Geometry as outlined by the Common Core. The heart of the module is the study of transformations and the role transformations play in defining congruence. The topic of transformations is introduced in a primarily experiential manner in Grade 8 and is formalized in Grade 10 with the use of precise language. The need for clear use of language is emphasized through vocabulary, the process of writing steps to perform constructions, and ultimately as part of the proof-writing process.

Geometry Module 2: Similarity, Proof, and Trigonometry

Just as rigid motions are used to define congruence in Module 1, so dilations are added to define similarity in Module 2.  To be able to discuss similarity, students must first have a clear understanding of how dilations behave.  This is done in two parts, by studying how dilations yield scale drawings and reasoning why the properties of dilations must be true. Once dilations are clearly established, similarity transformations are defined and length and angle relationships are examined, yielding triangle similarity criteria.  An in-depth look at similarity within right triangles follows, and finally the module ends with a study of right triangle trigonometry.

In this module, students explore and experience the utility of analyzing algebra and geometry challenges through the framework of coordinates. The module opens with a modeling challenge, one that reoccurs throughout the lessons, to use coordinate geometry to program the motion of a robot that is bound within a certain polygonal region of the plane—the room in which it sits. To set the stage for complex work in analytic geometry (computing coordinates of points of intersection of lines and line segments or the coordinates of points that divide given segments in specific length ratios, and so on), students will describe the region via systems of algebraic inequalities and work to constrain the robot motion along line segments within the region.

In Module 10.3, students engage in an inquiry-based, iterative process for research. Building on work with evidence-based analysis in Modules 10.1 and 10.2, students explore topics that have multiple positions and perspectives by gathering and analyzing research based on vetted sources to establish a position of their own. Students first generate a written evidence-based perspective, which will serve as the early foundation of what will ultimately become a written research-based argument paper that synthesizes and articulates several claims with valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. Students read and analyze sources to surface potential problem-based questions for research, and develop and strengthen their writing by revising and editing.
