Do you lead professional learning for your colleagues? Avoid common pitfalls and learn how to design interactive learning with this virtual workshop that values what educators know and brings new ideas to engage colleagues in learning while building on their expertise.
We all aim to create learning environments where all students thrive, but have we been avoiding one of the biggest factors that impacts the learning opportunities that we offer our students? Join us for a conversation about identity and how our experiences play a role in our classroom community and our students’ personal math identities.
In this three part series with Student Achievement Partners, you will experience and understand the tools, practices, and processes for completing a teaching and learning cycle of inquiry to determine and act on where students are in their mathematical understanding in order to finish the school year strong.
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.
A three-week online course is 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.
While we can’t control what school looks like, we know we are flexible, resilient, and willing to face challenges head-on to do what we can to support students.
Our ‘Developing Young Mathematicians’ (DYM) workshop series explores foundational math concepts for kids ages 3-6. Participants will explore and discuss how teachers can tap into young learners’ natural curiosity and the power of play to develop mathematical thinking.
