The Elementary Math Department professional development efforts have evolved around assisting teachers in unpacking and understanding the Common Core Standards/New Jersey Learning Standards for the purpose of developing lessons that support the standards through the use of instructional centers. The Elementary Math Department continues to promote the use of instructional centers as the pedagogical practice for the math classrooms. The links to the pages below will take you to the lesson format utilized in the district and lessons developed specifically for the CCSS. This work is the collaborative effort of Plainfield Elementary Teachers and Dr. Eric Milou of Rowan University. The site is a work in progress and will be updated on an ongoing basis as lessons are created.
