Grades K-5 aren't getting new math curricula this year and many schools, like mine, will continue to use Everyday Math. The version my school uses, and the one that is available on Schoolnet (2007), wasn't originally written for CCSS, but they have created an Instructional Bridge for this version with supplementary content that does address it. The documents under "Tips and Tools" addressed some of the topics covered in the math session of Leadership Week -- Standards for Mathematical Practices.

For those of you who work with ELA-S teachers, here is a link to the Spanish Literacy Common Core State Standards. The Fundamental Skills and Language Standards are quite a bit different in Spanish. The differences are called out in blue text. Take a look!

I really like this method of students demonstrating the standards through learning objects.

This video has made the rounds, but we (in early education) have found it to be a nice grounding piece with teachers, as we talk about instructional shifts, CCSS, and project based learning.

I'm really interested in the process school leaders take to create structures for data teams to work well at their school. Any ideas on what works best?

What are the best ways to ask students to activate their background knowledge in order to increase the rigor and relevance of their responses?

There are a large amount of math lessons on this site, specific to critical thinking. I have seen many that speak to the shifts, and in student ownership.
