Dec 2014

Glory Tobiason, Margaret Heritage, Sandy Chang, Barbara Jones and Joan Herman

This resource provides guidance for teachers in the design of daily lessons that support student learning of the math college- and career- ready standards (CCRS). This resource emphasizes the formative assessment process in lesson planning and improvement, such as strategies to elicit evidence, responding to anticipated and unanticipated evidence, and providing feedback. Five planning tools are included in this resource. Although it can be used by itself, this resource draws on teacher learning and work from other resources in the CSAI series.
