3 New DESE Resources
The 'What To Look For' documents are finally live! Feel free to check them out here. The first set of released documents include mathematics grades 1-8 and science grades 1-8. I highly recommend clicking on the PDF versions. They are extremely visually pleasing and user-friendly.
If you are curious about the use of these documents, feel free to attend the Curriculum and Instruction Convening on October 27th or 28th. I will be co-facilitating a workshop entitled, Developing a Shared Understanding of Quality Practice (8A) in which we watch a video and practice using the 'What To Look For' documents. For more information about the Convening, click here.
Our last resource is a bank of videos. Did you know that DESE has a YouTube page? The bank includes 40 brand new high quality videos of K-12 classroom instruction covering four major content areas. We will be showing one of these very videos during our Convening workshop. Click here to get a sneak peak of the 7th grade math video!
