Mission Statement

Develop the highest quality math instruction to maximize student achievement and mathematical proficiency through alignment of grade-level benchmarks to appropriate instructional practices, materials, resources, and pacing. Our goals include:

ü  Teach the benchmarks in depth by providing learning-rich classroom activities that follow the CRA model

ü  Enhance the curriculum by using resources and instructional technology

ü  Differentiate instruction by varying methods of instruction

ü  Regularly administer assessment to include higher-level questions and performance task assessment

ü  Collaborate with other grade-level teachers to maximize school resources and teacher expertise

ü  Articulate vertical alignment and subject area integration

ü  Document questions and suggestions for improvement of the Pacing Guide

ü  Consider applying for a grant to support project-based learning for the school

ü  Pursue professional development opportunities and resources



Instructional Pacing Guide:    Created with input from grade-level teachers to correlate to the Next Generation Standards and is designed to help teachers to efficiently pace the delivery of quality instruction and provide checkpoints of assessment accountability.

Instructional Focus Calendars:  After disaggregating data, each school will develop an instructional focus calendar. The focused instruction for each week will be based on data.  While all schools will follow the District Pacing Guide to cover the primary benchmarks, schools will also collaboratively create a roadmap for teaching, re-teaching, and assessing targeted benchmarks during the academic school year to address their secondary benchmarks based on data.  Instructional Focus Calendar details when specific benchmarks will be taught and assessed.  It is not intended to replace the District Pacing Guide but to be used concurrently and be customized based on academic needs of students at a specific school.     Click on links for models

    Instructional Delivery Guide:  The Instructional Delivery Guide specifies the math content to be covered within each instructional period and HOW it will be taught. The guide includes, but is not limited to: benchmarks, essential questions, instructional activities, student involvement tasks, intervention strategies, literary connections, content and technology integration, information that is specific to a school’s or student’s needs, textbook correlations, other resources, FCAT info, such as item specs.  CPalms has a drop down template for creating instructional delivery guides @ www.floridastandards.org.   Click on submit a resource and register for an account.  You do not have to submit finished products.
