Barbara - I passed the above along in my district (WSESU) and received
the following
response. Can you shed any further light?   Thanks.   Cliff

I'm curious about how Addison Central coordinates 5th and 6th grade - Do
they teach some units in fifth and some in sixth?  Do they repeat
units,or
split units between the two grades?

At the fifth grade Investigations workshop this summer, Dot and Mark
gave
us info on how the fifth grade Investigations units and sixth grade CMP
units coordinate.  It was interesting to see the amount of overlap and
repetition (and in my experience, the repetition is often in areas in
which students need that spiraling curriculum because of conceptual
difficulties).
