This "post-Common Core" era may seem confusing and overwhelming for those who teach mathematics. We're told to be more student-centered, but are expected to help students dig deeper while promoting higher-order thinking skills. Understanding must come first, but fluency is still a necessity. We distinguish between skills that are essential and those that are nice to know- but all of them may still be on The Test. Meanwhile, we're having to push ourselves to teach in ways that are different from those in our own P-12 experience, and fend off parents and others who question our work.

In this session, we'll examine policy-based approaches, research foundations, and evidence-based strategies that boil down to just four simple rules to guide our work in the mathematics classroom. Participants will leave with (a) a full understanding of what's behind the rules, (b) the ability to recite the rules and explain how they apply to their own classrooms, and (c) a mini-poster of the rules (just in case!).
