Dine and discuss transition to Common Core assessments

Districts are invited to learn more about the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, the creators of Maine’s new Common Core assessment, over dinner at two separate events near their region.

During a discussion on standards for mathematical practice, attendees will work with sample math assessment items, talk about implications for classroom practice, and learn about resources to try assessment tasks with students.

This is an opportunity to network with colleagues from your region and meet your district representative and Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine (ATOMIM) board members.

You must attend both sessions in the same location in order to complete the series. Teachers and administrators from across Maine are encouraged to attend the nearest sessions. See dates and locations below.

You may register for this series on the ATOMIM website. Members of ATOMIM are charged $20, and non-members are charged $40. For non-members, payment includes a one-year membership. Prices  include two sessions, materials and a light dinner for each session.
