Learn Strategies for Implementing the Common Core Standards for Junior High School Math Teachers

By Cameron Pipkin

September is Common Core in the Classroom month here at School Improvement Network. To help you accomplish successful Common Core implementation, we’ve been sharing video footage of teachers using the Common Core in the classroom.

On Tuesday, September 25, we hosted a webinar led by Kimberly Snowball, an 8th grade math teacher who spent the entire 2011-2012 school year implementing the Common Core.

If you click on the video I’ve posted above, you can watch Snowball present a lesson about formulas for the volume of cones, cylinders, and spheres that aligns to the Common Core Standards for junior high school math teachers—specifically “Standard for Mathematical Content” 8.G.9, and “Standards for Mathematical Practice” MP.2 & 8.

If you like what you see fo Snowball's lesson, check out this webinar, in which Kimberly Snowball discusses strategies for implementing the Common Core Standards for junior high school math teachers.

Let me know how Snowball’s lesson works for your students, and as always, I’d love to hear about how the Common Core is going at your school and/or classroom.
