The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) present an opportunity to engage Tennessee students deeper into the fundamental types of problem solving and mathematical thinking for life after high school.
Call for Textbook Reviewers – Mathematics K-12
The department is excited to announce a call for reviewers for the state review of math instructional materials. We are looking for outstanding math teachers who are passionate about ensuring all students have access to high quality instructional materials. We want this process to generate better quality resources and tools therefore we need reviewers who can distinguish between curriculum at the rigor of the standards and curriculum that is not good enough. Participating as a textbook reviewer will be an opportunity for powerful professional development and learning and an opportunity to serve your state.
The work of textbook reviewer is rigorous and important work and the selection process will be similarly rigorous. More information is available HERE
The Commission expects to contract with approximately 36 teachers for the review process, which lasts from May through September. If you have questions about the application, please email Tammy Shelton, Executive Director of Content and Resources, Tammy.L.Shelton@tn.gov

The Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI2) Initiative is a 3-Tier framework that promotes recommended practices for an integrated system connecting General and Special Education by the use of high-quality, scientifically research-based instruction and intervention. The Guidelines for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-12 in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics provide a summary and overarching view of instruction and intervention. The RTI2 Manual provides more detailed information on the 3-Tier framework.
