Resources for Instruction
- Mathematics Instructional Plans (2016 SOL) – formerly known as Enhanced Scope and Sequence Lessons, are now available for Grades K-8, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Algebra, Functions and Data Analysis. These instructional plans include updated 2009 documents, as well as newly developed instructional plans aligned to the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning. The Mathematics Instructional Plans assist teachers in aligning instruction with the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning by providing examples of how the knowledge, skills and processes found in the SOL and Curriculum Framework can be presented to students in the classroom.
- Co-teaching Mathematics Instructional Plans (2016 SOL) – These plans utilize the six common co-teaching approaches, and contain suggestions as to how co-teachers can effectively utilize the expertise of each teacher to enhance lessons and activities in a co-taught classroom. These co-teaching plans were created and modified by a select group of Virginia teachers participating in the Excellence for Co-teaching Initiative. These plans align instruction with the expectations of the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning, and were vetted by VDOE content and special education specialists.
- Mathematics Vocabulary Word Wall Cards (2016 SOL) – Mathematics vocabulary word wall cards provide a display of mathematics content words and associated visual cues to assist in vocabulary development. The cards should be used as an instructional tool for teachers and then as a reference for all students, particularly English learners and students with disabilities.
- 2017 Mathematics Standards of Learning Institutes – The 2017 Mathematics Standards of Learning Institutes provided training that focused on deepening participants’ understanding of the Standards of Learning review and revision process, progression of the mathematics standards, and the use of high leverage mathematics teaching practices as outlined in the NCTM Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All executive summary. A product of the 2017 Mathematics Institutes is a set of online professional development modules designed to be used by a group of teachers of a specific grade level or course, facilitated by a member of the team. Modifications could be made to adapt the professional development for more than one grade level/course or for large groups. Facilitators should review the activities and handouts in this guide prior to facilitating this professional development.
