    PD Survey: Add Your Voice!

    The VLC team has partnered with researchers from the University of Michigan to improve your experience using classroom video and other records of practice for your teaching and professional development activities within the VLC and beyond. Your input as VLC members is invaluable and will inform the types of videos, resources, and services that are available to teachers.

    If you are willing to take a short survey about these issues, please register here by September 11 and the survey will be sent to you when it opens.

    Our partners are Elizabeth Yakel, Ph.D. (University of Michigan School of Information) and Kara Suzuka, Ph.D. (University of Michigan School of Education) and the research study is called Qualitative Data Reuse: Records of Practice in Educational Research and Teacher Development (http://qualitativedatareuse.org/). This study is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

    EM4 Classroom Resource Package Module

    We are excited to announce a new online professional development resource for teachers using Everyday Mathematics 4. The Everyday Mathematics 4 Classroom Resource Package (CRP) learning module is now available free of charge. This module acquaints you with the contents of the CRP, your instructional tools for using Everyday Mathematics. This module serves as a great resource for new staff members and veteran teachers who would like a refresher on the EM4 features. It also serves as a great ongoing resource for teachers to refer to throughout the school year. All participants receive a certificate of completion once the module is completed.

    Check out the new resource here.

Grading End of Unit Assessments

Has anyone created a rubric or system for a giving an overall grade/or score to End of Unit assessments? In first grade our team is trying to figure out how to share a score with families beyond Meets or Doesn't Meet. We would also like to be able to translate students' performance into something for report card use.
