Math Vertical Planning
Think-Write-Pair-Share: "Vertical Planning"
Looking vertically at the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, teachers will work collaboratively to review standards across grade levels and develop a deep understanding of what is required in the upper grades. Teachers will be actively involved in cross-grade level discussions of problems students have with the standard in the higher grade level and brainstorming instructional ideas that will help teachers in the lower grades better prepare their students.
Through communication and cooperation, teams design curricular change and create support structures necessary to make high achievement by all students a reality.
In vertical teams, teachers from different grade levels work together to develop a continuum of knowledge and skills that build from one grade level to the next. Team communication leads to a greater understanding of what is taught each year, which helps teachers organize strategies, plan introduction of concepts, and reduce repetition of content. As a result, student achievement and success is enhanced.
What is vertical planning?
Participate in a positive manner with a goal of consensus
