On Tuesday, October 17, Haywood county teachers met for a variety of professional development sessions. One session that Math 1 teachers attended was focused on course pacing.
As part of the session, teachers engaged in a standard sorting activity for the North Carolina curriculum in math. Teachers examined the vertical alignment of math standards from K-3. Understanding the curriculum across all grade levels helps teachers understand where the classes they teach fit into the big picture of the whole math curriculum.
Layna Cope, THS math 1 teacher, said “It’s awesome to see the collaboration we have in our County. I’m excited how our schools can grown individually and collectively as a district. “
