I am very familiar with the CC Standards for Mathematical Practice. I do use them purposefully in my classroom and model and share with students when we are using a particular standard in an effort to familiarize them with the standards. I love the idea of deliberately adding a process standard to my plans when looking at my content learning targets. I think embedding these tools into my lesson planning will make a stronger and more meaningful connection.
The thinking strategies will help students to construct meaning as they work to read through tasks and solve problems in the mathematics classroom.
I look forward to reading all of your posts. Thanks for linking up!
