## Engaged in Learning

I always felt that staying abreast of the current trends in teaching is what keeps the fire inside me burning. Now, more than ever, teachers face changes in the field and keeping current is so critical for us and our students’ learning. This is why I jumped at the opportunity to go to Albany last August to learn more about the Common Core State Standards and the ELA modules that were being rolled out by New York State.

Grade 4 Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division

In this 43-day module, students use place value understanding and visual representations to solve multiplication and division problems with multi-digit numbers. As a key area of focus for Grade 4, this module moves slowly but comprehensively to develop students’ ability to reason about the methods and models chosen to solve problems with multi-digit factors and dividends.

A Story of Units provides a clearly sequenced and comprehensive educational program. Coupled with effective and replicable professional development, A Story of Units provides New York teachers with the knowledge and tools necessary to implement the important instructional shifts required by the CCLS.

## Guidance for Using the 2012 to 2013 Comparison Chart with APPR Plans

In April 2013, New York State administered the first round of tests to measure student progress on the Common Core for Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.  The Department recognizes that following the 2010 adoption of the CCSS by the Board of Regents many districts and BOCES planned for the associated changes to the State assessments.
