Cindy Mikowicz and Mary Parr from Hinsdale Central School during the latest online
Adobe Connect meeting February 12th with Mark Carls from CABOCES
With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards this school year and a new Algebra I Common Core assessment this June, many area teachers have joined forces to share ideas and strategies to tackle this new challenge. Area teachers met face-to-face back on October 8th to begin planning the best way to approach the new standards and assessment. Since then, they’ve met after school in online CABOCES Adobe Connect meetings. In these online meetings they’ve continued to discuss their progress and to share ideas with their fellow educators. This Algebra I group will meet face-to-face again at the end of March and will have one final online meeting before the June 3rd Common Core Regents exam. Since this is the first year of implementation of the Common Core Algebra I exam the date of the exam was moved up to this earlier June date. These Algebra I students may also have the opportunity to take the Integrated Algebra exam during the regular Regents week the morning of June 20th.
