In the PARCC
Do you have questions about PARCC? You are not alone. This week's blog is devoted to getting you the information you need.
Let us begin with the twelve state-wide PARCC practice test regional sessions. DESE has teamed up with various Readiness Centers from across the Commonwealth to support stakeholders in exploring the online PARCC assessments. For more information on where the sessions are taking place click here.
Planning to attend the Curriculum Summit on October 27th or 28th? I will be leading a workshop on the Implications of PARCC Math Assessments for Math Instruction in Grades 3-8. We will be categorizing Illustrative Mathematics tasks in order to better understand what a balanced math classroom looks like.
Did you know that PARCC has monthly Twitter Office Hours? The first session on September 22nd was a tremendous success. If you'd like to read the tweets from this session, you can check them out on Storify. The next office hours session will be on October 23rd from 5:00-6:00pm. Each month will focus on a different PARCC topic.
