DSC Illustrative Mathematics 6-8

Open Up Resources: IM 6-8 Math Curriculum and Instruction Training:

Are you looking for a new curriculum that meets the rigorous demands of our state standards and supports the Arkansas Department of Education’s vision to lead the nation in student-focused education? This training will introduce you to a NEW, FREE resource provided by Open Up Resources called Illustrative Mathematics 6-8 Math Curriculum (IM).
This curriculum provides
? Vertical alignment information (K-HS) and differentiation strategies in the easy-to-follow teacher notes.
? Student-friendly learning targets at the beginning and end of each lesson to encourage students to take ownership in their own learning.
? Diagnostic and End-of-Unit Assessments, as well as Mid-Unit assessments for longer units.
? Built-in support for English Learners and Students with Disabilities within each unit, rather than providing in supplemental materials.
The initial two-day training is an opportunity to learn all the curriculum has to offer and the instructional strategies paired with it:
Day 1: A Focus on the Resource - A Look at the Curriculum and its Coherence
Day 2: A Focus on Pedagogy - Implementing the Curriculum

The training continues with follow-up support during the school year to ease the transition from professional development to implementation in the classroom with real students. We will customize support for each school based on your expressed needs for your students.

This curriculum offered by Open Up Resources is funded by a grant from the Gates Foundation. Curriculum for Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 are being piloted FY19 and will be available FY20. Open Up Resources plans to provide K-Algebra 2 vertically aligned curriculum in the near future.
