BUILDING BLOCKS FOR MATH FACTS MASTERY

The leadership team members put the isolated chunks of data together in order to examine the holes at each grade level. The team came to a very important conclusion. They realized that the holes were learner-centered problems, not that the problems were the learners themselves! (Boudett, City & Murnane, 2008) With this in mind, the team members focused on the building blocks of learning expectations at each grade level. The building blocks defined the benchmark expectation in reading/language arts (see extended response building blocks model) , and in math (see above) in line with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
