University of North Carolina Greensboro professor Dr. Karen Wixson shares a webinar on the CCSS and the instructional shifts. There are several key pieces of information that are worth reviewing including:
a) the “claims” are driving the assessment and not the individual standards (minute 3:45).
b) the implications for instruction (image below) at minute 11:45 and
c) what a “performance task” will look like on the coming assessments (minute 18:15).
