CCSS Toolkit

Shift 2: Coherence

Principals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. A teacher’s strong understanding of learning progressions will help them monitor a student’s progress and intervene in a timely basis. A student’s understanding of learning progressions can help them recognize if they are on track and can enable them to productively take more responsibility for improving their skills. (NMAP, 2008, p.20-22; Mosher, 2011; CCSSM, 2010, p.4)


Awareness & Understanding



To Do

Videos

To Do

Examine Specific Content Progressions


Understand key content progressions within the CCSSM

Videos


To Do

Understand Domain Progressions/Conceptual Categories


Understand how content progresses within the domains across grades in the CCSSM. In high school, begin looking at how content could be organized in a three year course to address the CCSSM content.
