IM 6-12 Math Professional Learning Events
Virtual unit overview participants collaborate with an IM Certified facilitator on an effective unit and lesson planning structure that focuses on the progression of understanding across the unit.
Explore four mathematical language routines (MLRs) that support the learning of mathematics and language development. MLRs in this session: Co-Craft Questions, Stronger and Clearer Each Time, Collect and Display, Three Reads, Discussion Supports.
Take a deeper dive into the mathematical language routines (MLRs) by practicing 3 new routines to gain hands-on experience and receive feedback. MLRs in this session: Clarify, Critique, Correct; Information Gap; Compare and Connect.

Synthesis is a key part of a problem-based lesson. In the IM Curriculum, synthesis often happens through student discourse. Using samples of student work, explore ways to plan and structure synthesizing discussions based on students sharing their ideas.
Gain an understanding of the 5 Practices for Orchestrating Mathematical Discussions, and how the curriculum embeds this planning structure in the materials to support both teacher planning and student learning.
Gain a deeper understanding of the 5 Practices by selecting and sequencing student work from curriculum lessons, and discussing classroom scenarios that could arise and impact instruction.
