Five Instructional Shifts for Supporting Rigorous Standards

Explore five essential instructional shifts that emphasize the mathematical practices and the content they support. Engage with high cognitive demand tasks and how to support them during instruction. Enhance your understanding of the shifts through the use of authentic video in classrooms.

 Of focus will be these five essential instructional shifts:
1.  Students provide strategies rather than learning them from the teacher

2.  Teacher provides strategies “as if” from students

3.  Students create the context

4.  Students do the sense making

5.  Students talk to students

How to make good decisions about Digital Content
It is easy to get distracted by bright shiny objects.  Teachers and leaders often find themselves weighing the pros and cons of different digital content options and getting overwhelmed by the choices. Data-driven decision making is a foundation of personalized learning. From the grouping of students, to strategic assignment of content, to keeping track of each student’s personalized learning paths, data is essential for making decisions.
