Online Learning to Fit Your Schedule

Who should lead mathematics instruction at the elementary school level

Take your professional learning online and expand your math support system with these online courses and workshops designed to fit your schedule.

Actions for Equitable Math Instruction for ALL

Overview:

Schools must function to provide each and every student with the opportunity to engage in rigorous and relevant mathematics in such a way that they become confident and successful doers of math. What structures and supports provide equitable math instruction for students? What do teachers need to enhance instructional practice? What established practices are currently in place within your system to ensure all students are learning mathematics?

Join the Math Institute and the WI RtI center to discover answers to these questions. Examine systems and structures that support students and teachers in a high quality math classroom. This two day virtual workshop will focus on strong Tier 1 instruction in mathematics. Utilize this learning opportunity to look closely at district structures to see where changes are needed to achieve positive, equitable mathematics learning experiences for all students. Discover school and classroom based strategies that promote student understanding of mathematics in Tier 1 instruction.

Math Foundations

Overview:

After a year full of stops and starts, it has become clear that flexibility is more important than ever when it comes to teaching and learning. The same is true for professional learning, which is why we have reimagined our Summer Institutes to offer our most customizable summer courses ever. 

This summer we are going back to basics with seven new mini courses designed to ground you in the most important foundational math concepts. Each course will explore a major math content area where students struggle most, while empowering you with the tools and confidence you need to make informed decisions in your math classroom. 

Comprised of just two virtual half days, these mini courses are designed to be a manageable way to engage in meaningful math learning from anywhere. Choose the courses that work best for you and get ready to refresh your math content knowledge without changing your summer plans.

Focus On Fall: Planning for Success

Overview:

A three-week online course designed to help you navigate how to head back to school in the fall, leveraging your strengths and the strengths of your students as you consider what mathematics instruction will look like, whether it’s face-to-face, remote, or hybrid. Throughout the course you will explore and analyze your current curricular materials to plan instruction that keeps grade-level learning as a top priority and focuses on moving students forward, using equitable instructional practices to make sure that all learners have opportunities for success.

Course Goals:
  • Empower you to use current math materials to integrate unfinished learning coherently within grade-level expectations
  • Consider a variety of instructional models (e.g., face-to-face, synchronous/asynchronous, digital/print) and how to plan for meaningful learning in any situation
  • Connect and collaborate with a virtual professional learning community to prepare for fall
