With the adoption of the CCSSM, teachers are required to ensure that students can effectively understand the content and engage in the practices. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are how the student engages with the mathematical content to develop both procedural fluency and conceptual understanding. They are separate, yet must be developed together. The in-depth work on key-concepts requires teachers to have a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts, the progressions found across grades, the points of intersection that exist between some of the domains within the CCSSM, the depth to which and the manner in which the content will be assessed, and how students best learn mathematics. TLJ trainers will provide topic specific content training that incorporates and models integrating writing, research-based strategies for teaching the content, effective questioning, the use of manipulatives and other tools of investigation as well as assessment options to ensure that teachers have the background needed to effectively instruct their students.
