Designed to fundamentally change the way teachers think about math and how they teach their students, this relevant, engaging, 4-or 5-day institute brings Mathematical Habits of Mind to life. Through hands-on, research-based activities, teachers deepen their own content knowledge while learning how to develop students’ number sense, computation, and problem-solving skills, as well as their abilities to think and reason.
This full-day course refines participants’ vision for their role as instructional leaders of mathematics. Participants increase their understanding of and ability to communicate about current state standards. They engage in mathematical tasks and discover the use of tools and structures to lead stakeholders toward effective mathematics teaching and learning.
Standards and student needs drive mathematics instruction. This course highlights Math Workshop, a model for organizing standards-based instruction to support all learners in the mathematics classroom. Participants engage in the Math Workshop model of instruction, reflect on how the structures and learning environment leverage increased learning for all students, and create a plan to implement Math Workshop in the classroom.
Team coaching builds upon and enhances the knowledge and experience of your math leadership team and teachers to help them move beyond the theoretical so they may apply best teaching and student learning practices into the classroom.
