Sarah posted on my last post about sharing some suggestions with the upcoming transition that many of us will be going through as we move to common core. I think this is a great idea and I certainly would love to see what everyone else is doing!
We currently use the Holt textbooks and I do not find them to be well correlated to the common core. There are some things I can use, but I will need to supplement a lot. I don’t use the textbook a lot in general anyway, but I do use it for examples and practice sometimes.
I also would love to see a bank of assessments that are more in the style of common core and the way it requires students to problem solve and think in way different ways about problems.
I have looked at the example problems on the Smarter Balanced website, and while those are awesome, there aren’t a lot of them yet, so I would love to see more we can work with.
If you have anything you have found, please share it here in the comments and I would be happy to get a list of things together!
