This book provides great sample activities that the teacher could use to enhance her curriculum. An example of this can be found on page 22 where the page starts off with: Subject: Math Learning Progressions: Patterns. Followed by: Domains: Operations and Algebraic Thinking (3rd & 5th); Functions (8th & High School). Then concrete examples are broken down for 3rd, 5th, 8th, and high school grades.
Also included is a possible timeline for implementing the CCSS locally. It is broken down into three columns: Task, Person(s) Responsible, and When. In the first row, the Task is: Know and understand the CCSS for Mathematics. Under Person(s) Responsible: All school personnel. Under When: August-September. This goes on until you get to July and have to start over. There are also resources to help implement CCSS.
This book is an excellent resource for teachers and administrators who work with gifted and advanced learners.
