Bridging Practices Among CT Math Educators

MSP Showcase

The Connecticut Dream Team mathematics work created materials to support instructional cycles that meet the needs of all learners. These "Instructional Cycle Guides" are designed to provide teachers with steps and materials needed to elicit student understandings and misunderstandings of a targeted concept, analyze the resulting student work, and implement a follow-up lesson that reengages students in the concept and provides opportunities for extra support and/or extension.

The following materials were developed by CT Dream Team members and will be utilized during the 2014 TeachFest.

Since the materials are not considered to be complete units of study or comprehensive lesson plans, they have not been rated using the Connecticut rating system that is based on the EQuIP rubrics.
