On the facing page are resources for Differentiated Instruction Activities. Each chapter identifies grade-level work and how it ties into previous and future grades. The Summative Assessments have a form A and B. Overall, the instructional materials for Grade 3 strongly exhibit characteristics of coherence as noted in indicators 1D and 1F, so for the entire criterion, the instructional materials partially meet the expectations. This is a quick tool that can be used for helping our students master the standards being taught.
This page will give suggestions on how to support them. This is where a Pod Cast icon will be placed if there is one available. Additionally, the lessons include diagnostics which are connected to the standard from the previous grade levels. Many of the practice and homework pages are developing procedural skill and fluency for example, chapter 9, lesson 5 on page 537. These gateways reflect the importance of standards alignment to the fundamental design elements of the materials and considers other attributes of high-quality curriculum as recommended by educators.
Digital materials include opportunities for teachers to personalize learning for all students, using adaptive or other technological innovations. Overall, the materials give students extensive work with grade-level problems, but there are a few instances where grade-level concepts are not explicitly related to prior knowledge from earlier grades. Students read, write and evaluate expressions in order to develop and evaluate formulas. A live answering assistance ensures that phone calls are answered very fast rather than have an automated system bounce a capability client from a person menu option on the subsequent. In order to be reviewed and attain a rating for usability Gateway 3 , the instructional materials must first meet expectations for alignment Gateways 1 and 2.
The instructional materials reviewed for Grade 3 meet the expectations for having an amount of content designated for one grade level as viable for one school year. Once a review is complete, publishers have the opportunity to post a 1,500-word response to the educator report and a 1,500-word document that includes any background information or research on the instructional materials. For example, chapter 11, lesson 4, on pages 647 and 648 of the teacher edition, the homework pages for about half the problems have a context. Licensees may copy, distribute, display and perform only verbatim copies of reports, not derivative works and remixes based on it, and must attribute and link back to EdReports. Are all standards present and treated with appropriate depth and quality required to support student learning? Through the e-Planner you can view the items as well as assign them to students for easier access during class time.
In this section you will find pages that are in the student text. Instead, learn tips to accurately use Yahoo! Overall, the instructional materials are strong in regards to rigor, identifying Mathematical practices and the language of mathematics, but need improvements in consistently attending to the full meaning of practice standards where they are identified. Overall, the amount of time needed to complete the lessons is appropriate for a school year of approximately 180 days. At the bottom of the page you will find the standard that is being taught in this chapter. For example, materials may provide a range of lessons to draw from on a topic.
Question 13 involves three steps, and this is more than what is asked for in either 3. Also, the materials mostly develop according to the grade-by-grade progressions, with non-grade-level content clearly identified. EdReports and associated marks and logos are the trademark property of EdReports. If there is content from prior or future grades, that content is clearly identified and related to grade-level work ii. Here you will be prompted to review by using the Essential Question.
The red section at the bottom of the page, Mathematical Practices, will give quick explanations for the teacher that are pertinent to this lesson. Minilessons follow an I Do, We Do, You Do format with modeled, collaborative, and independent writing practice. Materials give all students extensive work with grade-level problems iii. The instructional materials reviewed for Grade 3 meet the expectations for spending the large majority of class time on the major clusters of the grade. In the second half of the chapter, the supporting work is treated separately. Although there are three items that assess content standards from above Grade 3, the omission of these items and the lessons that align to the items from the materials would not substantially affect the underlying structure of the materials for Grade 3. See, for example, chapter 8, teacher edition, page 441.
The instructional materials reviewed for Grade 3 meet the expectations for giving attention to procedural skill and fluency. Materials relate grade level concepts explicitly to prior knowledge from earlier grades. At a glance, you can see what skills and standards were taught in the previous grade that support the present concept being addressed and what skills will be taught at the next grade level to build on what is being taught now. The materials meet expectations for identifying the practice standards and explicitly attending to the specialized language of mathematics as addressed in indicators 2E and 2G. The instructional materials reviewed for Grade 3 partially meet the expectations for prompting students to construct viable arguments and analyze the arguments of others concerning key grade-level mathematics detailed in the content standards.
Materials include problems and activities that serve to connect two or more clusters in a domain, or two or more domains in a grade, in cases where these connections are natural and important. Materials can be easily customized for local use. Gateways 1 and 2 focus on questions of alignment. . Now we come to the Lesson at a Glance page. These words and concepts can be used in word walls, math bulletin boards and even in math journals created by the students for future reference.
