Practical Strategies for Making Math Truly Work for All Students
A two-day workshop for teachers of mathematics in grades K-10
This fast-paced, example-laden workshop will address the translation of the vision of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in grades K-10 into daily classroom instruction. We’ll look at how our tasks, our questions and the discourse we engender create the engagement that leads to a depth of learning. We’ll explore, in very practical terms, the Eight Mathematics Teaching Practices and how they connect to the problem solving, perseverance, reasoning, argument, and modeling that are essential components of the Common Core. We’ll also model the high leverage instructional practices of on-going cumulative review, higher order questioning, embedding the mathematics in context, alternative approaches and constant use of representations to provide much stronger access to the mathematics.
