PARCC Educator Leader Fellows will highlight the most current information and resources designed to support effective implementation of the 2011 MA Curriculum Framework for Mathematics and state assessments. Resources showcased will include: videos of standards-based classroom teaching and learning; updates on the forthcoming PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) field tests; newly released PARCC prototype test items that demonstrate the core shifts of the standards integrated into the design of the PARCC assessment items; and strategies to help parents and the community learn more about the standards and assessments.
