Event Details

 

Teachers, principals, curriculum coaches,  and other school leaders are invited to join us as we share research-based evidence on how to strengthen mathematics instruction—specifically as it relates to problem solving—and how to increase student achievement. The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Practice Guide,  Improving Mathematical Problem Solving in Grades 4 Through 8, and its five recommendations, will be the focal points of the event.

This event is free to attend, and lunch will be provided.

Registration opens at 9:00 a.m. outside of the Jones Room. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. and will end by 3:45 p.m.

Highlights include:   

  • lunch keynote from Felicia Cumings Smith, Associate Commissioner of Education, Kentucky Department of Education
  • afternoon breakout sessions that will allow participants to dive deeper into the material
  • networking opportunities

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance, which can be submitted to their professional development coordinators for credit.

We are grateful to our partners and event sponsors, the Kentucky Association of School Administrators and the Kentucky Center for Mathematics.

Organizer

REL Appalachia

REL Appalachia serves Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

REL Appalachia is one of 10 federal Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs). We partner with regionally-based research alliances made up of schools, districts, and state departments of education to conduct research on K-12 education. We share the results with educators and help them put this new knowledge to work for students.

REL Appalachia collaborates with the alliances to address high-priority education needs. We are currently focused on three priorities:

  • Improving low-achieving schools
  • Ensuring students’ college and career readiness
  • Supporting effective teachers and school leaders
