About this workshop

Participants will leave this conference with a greater understanding of the CCSSM in general as well as in depth knowledge on a specific part of the standards. This two-and-a-half day workshop is intended for an audience of teachers, administrators, and district-level personnel transitioning to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Features of the program include perspective from lead author Bill McCallum as well as breakout sessions developed and led by teachers themselves. The topic of Focus in the CCSSM will be examined in depth, and participants will engage in creating their own PD focused on the major work of a specific grade band.
