Literacy

  • Introduction to Text Complexity: In this VL Module, you’ll learn about the role of text complexity in advancing equity, while exploring its quantitative and qualitative components. Along the way, you’ll have an opportunity to closely read a text, identify its complexity and learn how to craft questions that will build students’ understanding.
  • Text-Dependent Questions: In this VL module, you’ll learn about the purpose of TDQs, and what TDQs are. You’ll also get a chance to practice writing some TDQs of your own. We recommend this module for anyone who would like to learn more about this essential practice for literacy instruction.

Math

  • Understanding Mathematical Rigor: In this VL module, you’ll deepen your knowledge of the three aspects of rigor by showing you how to build these aspects into planning. Interactive games gives you a chance to apply knowledge and get quick feedback.
  • Deep Dive into the NBT Domain: This VL module explores the progression of the NBT standards across grades, and how the standards require us to build students’ conceptual understanding along with their procedural skill and fluency for the four operations of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Through two progressions activities, you’ll have an opportunity to more closely study the NBT standards, as well as strategies students, will use to become proficient with the four operations.
  • Deep Dive into the RP Domain: In this VL module, you’ll get a holistic view of the RP progression across grades, then build your knowledge of the standards within your own grade level. Most importantly, you’ll learn about RP by working through math items tied to the domain. 
  • Deep Dive into the NF Domain: In this VL module, you’ll get a holistic view of the NF progression across grades, then build your knowledge of the standards within your own grade level. Most importantly, you’ll learn about NF by working through math items tied to the domain.
  • Deep Dive into the EE Domain: In this VL module, you’ll get a high-level overview of the EE domain before exploring the EE standards for your grade in depth. Interactive activities will give you a chance to “do the math” alongside the standards. The module wraps up with a discussion of math tricks and mnemonic devices that you should avoid, which tend to hamper students’ conceptual understanding.
  • Deep Dive into the OA Domain: In this VL module, you’ll explore the progression of the OA standards across grades, and how the standards require us to build students’ conceptual understanding along with their procedural skill and fluency for the four operations of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. By observing classroom footage, we’ll also have an opportunity to learn strategies that ensure greater equity and lead to better student outcomes.
