## Video Professional Development Series: Grade 3 Math

We have two videos for small groups of educators to learn from the Common Core in practice. The first video is clear of any captions of evidence of Common Core alignment. The second video includes captions that highlight when the task or teacher move is illustrating Common Core aligned instruction. Educators will use a series of guiding reflection questions with the first video. These questions require educators to seek evidence of Common Core alignment in the video.

## Grade 3 ELA Module 3B

Considering Perspectives and Supporting Opinions:
Wolves in Fiction and Fact

In this eight-week module, students explore the questions: "Who is the wolf in fiction?" and "Who is the wolf in fact?" They begin by analyzing how the wolf is characterized in traditional stories, folktales, and fables. Then they research real wolves by reading informational text. Finally, for their performance task, students combine their knowledge of narratives with their research on wolves to write a realistic narrative about wolves.

The Foundational Reading and Language Standards Resources Package for Grades 3–5 is designed with three purposes: to articulate the research base for instruction regarding reading foundations standards; to point teachers to where that instruction lives “within the modules”; and, most important, to offer teachers options about how to organize an additional literacy block to comprehensively address these standards beyond and alongside the module lessons.

## Grade 3 Math Instruction: Focus Standard 3.MD.8

This Mathematics Common Core video features third grade students from John F. Kennedy Intermediate School located in Deer Park, Long Island. This lesson demonstrates Focus Standard 3.MD.8: Solve real world problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths and finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters and asks students to solve for perimeter using real-world problems.
