Identifying 'Rigor': District Strategies for Transitioning to the Common Core in Math
School districts face numerous systemic challenges in transitioning to the Common Core State Standards, including integrating new instructional methodologies and a new framework for mathematical practices across classrooms. In this webinar, two eminent math specialists-the co-authors of the recently published Realizing Rigor in the Mathematics Classroom-will offer practical strategies for district and school instructional leaders on ensuring cohesive implementation of the math standards. They will focus on defining what rigor looks like in connection with mathematical practices, identifying potential instructional and systemic obstacles, and effectively monitoring student and teacher progress toward established goals.
