Beyond the Common Core: A Handbook for Mathematics in a PLC at Work, Leader’s Guide helps leaders of mathematics teacher teams within professional learning communities (PLCs) focus their curriculum and vision on the elements of instruction and assessment necessary for student achievement. Using the practical guidelines in this handbook, F–12 mathematics leaders and administrators will support teachers to go beyond state or local standards to create the essential conditions to ensure success in mathematics for all students.

Series editor and author Timothy D. Karnold and author Matthew R. Larson present ten high-leverage team actions (HLTAs) to assist teams in narrowing their vision for instruction and assessment and increasing student learning while implementing Common Core State Standards or district and local standards. These HLTAs are steps taken before, during and after a unit of instruction – to prepare for instruction, to use formative assessment during instruction and to reflect on the results of student assessment and prepare for the next unit of instruction. The authors describe how to

  1. make sense of the agreed-on essential learning standards (content and practices) and pacing
  2. identify high-level-cognitive-demand mathematical tasks
  3. develop common assessment instruments
  4. develop scoring rubrics and proficiency expectations for the common assessment instruments
  5. plan and use common homework assignments
  6. use high-level-cognitive-demand mathematical tasks effectively
  7. use in-class formative assessment processes effectively
  8. use a lesson-design process for lesson planning and collective team inquiry
  9. ensure evidence-based student goal-setting and action for the next unit of study
  10. ensure evidence-based adult goal-setting and action for the next unit of study.
