  • Introduction to Blueprint/Roadmap
Middle School Curation Team
Rubric Discussion:
Standards of Mathematical Practice - The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe ways in which developing students should engage with the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise throughout the elementary, middle and high school years. Designers of curricula, assessments, and professional development should all attend to the need to connect the mathematical practices to mathematical content in mathematics instruction.
Practice Rubric Use:
6.NS.1. Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi? Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
LiveBinder Search:
  • It is your turn - locate a resource to score with the rubric
  • If the score is a 2 or 3, share the resource with your partner to score.
  • If the score is again a 2 or 3, then you may add this resource to myOER.
myOER Work:
  • Add a resource that has been scored whole group to confirm all understand the process
  • Don't forget to add the resource to your locker within myOER.
Blueprint Introduction:
  • Discussion of the draft blueprint- LiveBinder Blueprint/Roadmap Tab
  • Visit the grade level google doc to make comments for changes
  • This will be a week long process to revise as much as possible prior to Module 4 trainings and continue throughout the next year until we have a final Blueprint in June, 2013.
Days 2-5:
  • Join the Thinkfinity Community Middle School Curation Group
  • Continue finding resources that fit the criteria of 2 or 3 in our rubric
  • Continue to add resources into myOER - 25 per person by the end of the week
  • Continue our discussions of the Blueprint to refine as much as possible by the end of the week.
Day 5:
  • Plan for what is the next step in this process. Remember our thinkfinity community discussion as we progress in the school year.
  • Plan for upcoming face-to-face meetings.
