Math Foundational Services are designed to provide district level staff with information and tools as they work to develop, improve and align their mathematics curriculum.  Training sessions will contain components to prepare participants to be able to:

  • Analyze and explain the components of the ISBE Model Math Resources (Unit Maps and Scope and Sequences)
  • Describe and analyze the balanced assessment suite (purposes of the varied assessment formats)
  • Create and analyze real-world problems using the problem-solving structures described in the Illinois Learning Standards
  • Describe connections between assessments and lessons
  • Articulate the characteristics and goals of the Illinois Learning Standards.
  • Articulate the characteristics and goals of the PARCC assessment.
  • Apply the EQuIP rubric to evaluate a lesson or unit.
  • Learn state-level expectations and available support for the Illinois Learning Standards of Mathematics

The purpose of Networking for Implementation sessions is to provide participants an opportunity for deeper discussion around shared experiences and expertise for the purpose of implementing approved content in the seven Foundational Services areas.  The Networking for Implementation opportunities are based on specific objectives as determined by identified needs for further implementation discussions and/or exploration of the resources along with sharing.

Networking for Implementation sessions may include one or all of the following objectives for participants within a focus topic:

  • Examine a focus topic in depth to support implementation
  • Share impacts, successes, and lessons learned related to the implementation of the focus topic by facilitator(s) and participants
  • Ask and collaboratively address questions and challenges related to the implementation of the focus topic
